Splits one or more faces on a polygon mesh into multiple faces after you specify the split location on the mesh.

Interactive Split Tool >

NoteYou can also access the Interactive Split Tool by selecting a polygon, pressing + space bar + , selecting Split from the marking menu, and then swiping east.
Constrain to edges
Constrains any points you make to the edges. If you wish to make points on faces, uncheck this checkbox.
Insert with edge flow

Lets you insert edges that respect the curvature of the surrounding mesh. This option is disabled by default, but you can toggle Insert with edge flow by selecting and deselecting Edge Flow from the marking menu ( + + ).

TipTo create a split line with edge flow, temporarily activate Insert with edge flow by holding when you click the edge where you want the split to begin. See Split polygon faces.

Adjust Edge Flow

Enter a value or adjust the slider to change the shape of the edges before they are inserted.

Set Adjust Edge Flow to 1 to transform the surface curvature of the edges to respect the curvature of the surrounding mesh. At 0 the edges move to the middle of the other nearby edges, creating a flat surface.

Snap Magnets
Controls the number of snapping point inside edges. For example, 5 means that there are magnet points at each end and five in the middle.
Magnet Tolerance
Controls how close a point must be to a magnet before the point snaps to it. Set this to 10 to constrain points to always be at magnet points.
Color Settings
Each color distinguishes a marking lines or point used when splitting a face. Colors can be changed by double-clicking them.
NoteThe Highlight point is a pre-select highlight that allows you to see what edge or face you will be marking.
TipYou can snap to points that have already been created using the Snap to points option, either by turning it on in the status line or by using the V hotkey.
