This question already has an answer here:

I have a ring of vertices, and I would like to connect them with another edge together quickly. enter image description here I tried bridging 4 vertices together, but that took too long and made faces. Extruding with 'E' would also take too long. I couldn't find any way to do it before, but here is an example of what I would like to do: https://youtu.be/ENmN5PVMcQQ?t=1m41s How do I do this? I tried the bridge loop method, but it does all of the vertices at once, and it creates triangles, which I do not want either.

  • $\begingroup$ Is that what he uses in that part of the tutorial? I get an error saying to select at least 4 vertices to bridge them, and it creates a face as well, where I don't want faces. $\endgroup$ – Akados Oct 20 '17 at 18:16

  • $\begingroup$ If Bridge creates triangles then there isn't the same number of vertices in those 2 rings of edges. There isn't any other quick solution like Bridge if you want to connect 2 edge loops with different vertex count without any triangles $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Oct 20 '17 at 18:27
  • $\begingroup$ Can you figure out what he is using int he video? I've tried everything I could think of. Is there an addon that does this? $\endgroup$ – Akados Oct 20 '17 at 18:28

If you want to do this automatically, you can use Bridge Edge Loops by selecting the rings, pressing Spacebar and typing "Bridge Edge Loops":

enter image description here

If you prefer a semi-automatic way, make sure you have F2 addon enabled in User Preferences Ctr+Alt+U > Addons. Then select 2 vertices using F and continue filling the loop by moving your cursor in the direction you want to create faces and pressing the F (can be pressed repeatedly):
