Slide Edge

by KushiroCG in Addons

Slide Edge is a edge-sliding tool designed for duplicate and slide the selected edges.

It is very useful for retopology works and general modeling.

This tool is designed for topology works. You can slide the edges to inner or outer direction. The nearby edges of connected poles will be slide too.

You can also select boundary edges to slide.

You can also select edges from multiple locations to slide together.

This tool is designed for core modeling work. Hope you enjoy it !
