This video covers the basics of snapping, a way to align parts of objects.
- [Instructor] In drafting and 3D modeling,…it's important to be able to line up and connect…graphic elements to each other.…Typically, cad software has included…a feature called snapping.…It's kind of like having magnets and guides…that keep things aligned.…Let's take a look at the more common snap options.…As we saw earlier, we have a snapping palette…that we docked in the upper right corner of our screen.…Let's go up there and if we click on the name snapping,…we can click and drag that over…and undock it.…
