Edge ‣ Bridge Edge Loops

Bridge Edge Loops connects multiple edge loops with faces.

Connect Loops
Open Loop

Loops connected with open ends.

Closed Loop

Tries to connect to a circular loop (where the start and end are merged).

Loop Pairs

Connects each even count of loops individually.

Merge

Merges edge loops rather than creating a new face.

Merge Factor

Which edge loop the edges are merged to, a value of 0.5 will merge at a half-way point.

Twist

Determines which vertices in both loops are connected to each other.

Number of Cuts

The number of intermediate edge loops used to bridge the distance between two loops.

Interpolation

Linear, Blend Path, Blend Surface

Smoothness (スムーズ)

Smoothness of the Blend Path and Blend Surface.

Profile Factor

How much intermediary new edges are shrunk/expanded.

Profile Shape

The shape of the new edges. See the Proportional Editing page for a description of each option.

Simple example showing two closed edge loops.
