Snapping polygons

In this video I'm going to show you how we can snap and organize our vertex points into a more logical order. So if we open our file in Chapter Two, F1_Snapping, let's go into our top view and zoom in. We'll shade, and we'll put wireframe unshaded as well. Let's select our endgun. And let's take a look at some of these polygon points. Now we want to ensure that this middle row of polygons is exactly on axis zero. So if I right click, select vertex point, and let's just, press W to move. Let's just move these off the grid for a second like this.

Now if I press the x key for grid, I can snap that vertex point right back exactly on that grid. Pull the x down, I can snap it. As I get closer to a grid, that vertex point will naturally want to snap right onto that grid. I can also move two vertex points or multiple vertex points at the same time. Select, press the x, and then they will snap like that. But what if my vertex points are staggered like this? If I pick both of them,...
