Edge Loops after dissolving edge

Hey Guys,

Probably another noob question, if I dissolve and edge I can then no longer add an edge loop on that resulting face, but I can delete the face then create a new face and it works again, anyone know why that is?


How many vertices does the face have after dissolving the edge? Loop cut doesn’t work on triangles or Ngons, only on quads.

Still 4 vertices, it’s really easy to replicate on a cube, edge loop round the whole thing, dissolve all the edges you’ve just created, try to create another loop, it won’t let you, pick one face, delete it, select the 4 vertices and create a new face, try edge loop again and it’ll work. Not sure if it’s a deliberate thing or a bug.


Seems to work fine for me:
