Try playing with Edit Polygons -> Wedge Faces.
In order to use this tool, you'll need to select a face, and 1 or more edges (the selection order is irrelevant).
Go into the options box, and mess with the Wedge Divisions and Wedge Angle on a simple object to get the hang of it first.
Here is a demonstration video from the Alias Website.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. --Thomas A. Edison
