Using gumball and aligning with a snap point of another object

Hello,

I am new to Rhino having used MicroStation for many years. One of the cool features of MicroStation is Accudraw which allows you to constrain the movement of objects in the X, Y and Z direction and also snap to other objects thus aligning them to a snap point. So you can move an object in the Z direction and snap to an endpoint of another object, the second object is location in another arbitrary location in space.

Is there an ability to align one object to a snap point of another using gumball or do I have to use the align tool?

Regards,

Sunil

There are several ways of doing this. You can use the regular Move command and use the tab key to lock movement in a certain direction. For moving to a z value, you can use Move > vertical. And you can use the .x, .y, and .z filters to take a value from some other point.

Cool, thanks.
