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 

 

Thakyou

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

You can align objects by snapping them together and then rotating

To rotate the bottom extrusion with the one above it
