Moving/aligning objects

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I want to align a fence. I need it straight - I have tried using the rotate tool to kinda line it up, but this is unpractical  & still not really lining up the object onto the plan nice & straight.


I down load an object - in this case its a fence & I want it to sit nice & straight onto my garden design


How do I line up an object five & straight, am I going crazy 


all help welcomed

While mid rotation with the rotation tool - hold the SHIFT key to snap your rotation to major axis before you make the final click.

Snap together




Align the rotate tool with the lower extrude




Click and rotate to match the extrude above it
