- I've mentioned in previous videos about Snap and Grid…and a little bit about how they work.…What we're going to do now…is look at Snap and Grid in AutoCAD LT…and utilize it to edit these two shapes that we've drawn.…So let's have a look at our shapes…and how this Snap and Grid allows us…to work effectively,…but more importantly, accurately,…wtihin AutoCAD itself.…Now to switch Snap and Grid on,…you use these ones here,…there's Grid, and there's Snap.…Now I'm gonna click on this little arrow here…and I'm gonna go into my Snap Settings.…
So you can see the grid how it is at the moment,…and you can see that Snap is on…and Grid is on.…So if I move any objects around…they will snap to the grid.…I'm going to change my grid spacing, though.…I want that to be one.…And if I press Tab, it updates the other box, as well.…I click on Okay…and you'll notice the grid spacing has got…a bit bigger.…So basically now the grid spacing is set…to one unit with increments of a half.…So you can see there that I've got…slightly bigger grids to work to.…
