  1. Thanks for sharing. You can also use the Knife Tool with cut-through (Z) and lock-angle (C) enabled . . . just have to align your starting view to your preference.

    • Interesting . . . something else I noticed - for me, this doesn't yield proper results if in Face Selection or Edge Selection mode. Works great in Vertex Selection mode. Again, thanks for sharing these quick-tips. They're fun to test.
