Why does my line always snap to the cplane instead of the line?


#1

I’m trying to get used to using rhino, however, i’m having trouble with the cplane. I’ve drawn two line in the z direction and i want to draw another line connecting them however, whenever i try, the line i’m trying to draw snaps to the c-plane instead of the end of the line like the first image.
The only way i can get my new line to snap to the end point of the original line is if i set my cplane to object(line), however, now when i try to connect it to the second line, it again snaps to the cplane, image 2.

I have only osnap turned on and ‘end’ selected

How do i work with this?
Please help

Hi Baz,

This is caused by “project” being checked in your Osnaps:

While at it, have a look at the helpfile for project:
http://docs.mcneel.com/rhino/5/help/en-us/user_interface/object_snaps.htm#ProjectOsnap

FWIW also look at the Planar option to keep subsequent points that are not snapped in the same plane:
