Efficiency of using Inset


was there any specific reason you used the Inset tool instead of removing the top face alltogether and then Extruding the entire cup out- or inwards?

Obviously that would have to happen before you model the handle, but is there a downside to extruding the entire mesh like that?

It would save the time it took to readjust the inner edgeloops to match the outer ones, no?
