Custom Snapping 3D Loci



A request for a new function/tool:

"Make a 3D Loci an 'overriding' snapping point"

Similar to a symbol insertion point, but customizable and connected to the group/symbol/solid etc., so that one can snap to a manually defined point.

This would be useful because sometimes desired snap points aren't corners or edges - the workaround at the moment is to snap to a normal endpoint and then move the object by hand to the desired position. Can become quite time-consuming and tedious.

This sounds like Master Snap Points which were introduced a version or two ago.


Put a 2D or 3D locus in a symbol, then check "Master Snap Point" in the OIP. This will then override other adjacent snaps within the Symbol.




Also, make sure Master Snap Points are turned on in your SmartCursor Settings.
