@ Any one that can help !

Hey guys, I was wondering if there is a way to cut a mesh up using just the edge loop that's already on the mesh. This would have the same effect as select a couple of faces and doing Mesh - Extract, but this way round would take me ages because I have such a complex model.
Thank you to any one that can help me.


  1. How about selecting the edge, doing a bevel with a very small offset. Then selecting that new loop of faces and deleting them. Select the model and seperate.

  2. A quick and easy way to select those new faces is this :

    -Select your loop
    -Bevel that loop with a small offset
    -Insert an edge loop between those 2 new edges you have from the bevel
    -Double click that middle edge loop
    -Convert that selection to faces

  3. Like this :
