Join Steve Nelle for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the improved snap functionality, part of 3ds Max 2011 New Features.
When wanting to move an object with a greater level of precision, you'll…typically want to activate 3ds Max's Snap function.…New to the 2011 version of the software are a couple of real handy visual cues…that pop-up in your viewports, to help you with both your snapping accuracy and…to give you a little bit better visual feedback.…To show you how those new features work, I am going to be using a file named New Snaps.…Let's first activate the Snap command.…We can use either the Snap Toggles icon in the middle of the toolbar or we can…simply press the S shortcut key on our keyboard.…
