Extrude edge creating unwanted vertices
show user profile  Alizea
Click here for image

it's a bit hard to see, but my problem is very annoying. The blue vertex is where the vertex is supposed to be, and the pinkish edges were the ones that I had tried to extrude. For some reason, whenever I try to extrude on a corner, it'll create unwanted vertices. This ends up creating several problems espesialy when I'm fixing the occasional gap I find in the mesh which is usualy caused by the extrude.

I'm new at this, but I haven't been able to find a post with this problem. Any help is appreciated, or just directions to a thread that has a solution would be lovely.

Thanks in advance

I might be wrong, or the wine I had is affecting my memory but i never had to use the Extrude function (if that's what you are using) on a vertex, specially on head modelling, the only time I use the Extrude button is for faces and i use Shift+move gizmo for extruding edges. If you want to add new edges to your model use the cut or connect buttons.

Happy new year !

Sorry, i'm not sure I was quite clear on what my problem is ^^' I used extrude on the edge, but it ended up creating a new vertex that shouldn't be there and an extra face. I'll see if I can upload some more pictures so I can demonstrate a bit better...

Are you in edge constraint mode? If so, switch back to "none." I often try to extrude an edge and forget I've got constraints on.

Also - I'm unclear whether you're doing this or not based on the picture, but just in case... - you should only extrude border edges when using edge extrusion method.
