Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Mirroring and aligning objects, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
In this lesson, we'll be taking a look at the Mirror and Align functions. …We're going to go ahead and open a scene that we have, this is found in the …project files under the clock project. Within the clock project, you'll find a …scenes folder where you'll be able to find Clock Scene 05. …In this scene we have a clock, a pill bottle, glass, and lamp, all set up for us.…
And we'll want to align up these three pills so that they're oriented in the …same manner. It's going to actually take this pill and …make it quite a bit bigger. The idea of using Align is to allow you …take one object and to line it up with another one. …Quite simply put, you select the object you wish to align and invoke the Align command.…
Once you select the target of your alignment, you get your aligned selection …dialog window, that allows you all the different options. …We see here that our Match Scale Alignment was all turned on, which forces …that capsule to align to the target's scale, in any one or in all of the three axes. …
