Simple lathe object won't loop cut /sample included

Made a simple ‘goblet’, but the Loop Cut tool won’t cut horizontally, only vertically:

Perhaps related is that Loop SELECT doesn’t work vertically or horizontally.

Whut’s up with this mesh? Tnx

If you hide some of the faces on the outside of the shape you will see the problem. You have a whole load of internal faces. Easy enough to fix. Switch to Face select mode and do a Select>Select All By Trait>Interior Faces then X and delete those faces. Problem solved.

Ahhh, thanks :+1: :+1: :+1:, since I lathed a Face, I shoulda guessed that myself.

I’m guessing the ‘real’ way to do this is to lathe a Curve, d’oh! :man_facepalming:t3::man_facepalming:t3::man_facepalming:t3:
