Subdivide Selection

Launching the Tool

Click the 'Subdivide Selection' icon from the Artisan toolbar or choose Tools->Artisan->Subdivide Selection from the menu.


  1. Select any number of faces
  2. Launch the tool
  3. The selected faces will be subdivided. Adjacent faces will also be divided so that the mesh remains clean.

Note that if the faces contain holes, it is better to first divide the face into quads using the Line Tool so that the subidvision will create a nicer mesh.
