Question Why does this edge loop stop? (Maya 2011)

Hey Guys,

I'm starting to think more carefully about topology now days and where I would have let an edge loop like this go before, I'm finding I now want to know the reasons for these effects.

It's all quads, there are no dodgy floating verts or anything. Why doesn't the edge loop continue?

Thanks,

D

That kind of intersection will always stop an edge loop. It can't decide which way to turn - left or right.

That's a very good point.

Thanks!
