In my techdrawing class I have been using the Rhino program, and have found it extremely easy to create 3d objects then combine them using Osnaps(currently creating a car for a contest).
I am going off to college later this year(for computer animation) and wanted to familiarize myself with Maya a bit before shipping off. I am having a bit of difficulty making objects using Nurbs(mainly with trying to manipulate the object), so all I am using right now is polygonal objects since I know how to get the objects face and then deform it and whatnot.
Back to the Point.
However I was wondering if Maya has an Osnap system? Rhino has Osnap which has helped me out alot in creating some of my things, but I am having a lot of difficulty trying to align objects and combine them in maya. All I can find is the little magnets on the toolbar to point or face...but I cant get anything to actually snap together along a face or to a point.
Does Maya do this or do I just need to eyeball it???
Oh and I'm using Maya Personal Learning Edition.
Thanks in Advance!!
