Posts: 6 Thanks: 0 Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts constrained axis vertex snap Is there any way to snap a vertex along a constrained axis to a vertex that is off that particular axis? This one is hard to explain without having a visual... for example, if you are looking at a box from the top view and the top two corners are not 90 degree angles, is there a way to grab the top right vertex and snap it to the height of the top left vertex to make the object perfectly square? In Max you can select a vertex and move it along x, y, or z axis and snap it to any other vertex in the scene while keeping it on that axis. Hope I didn't make this question overly complicated

Drag it to the desired vertex. It will snap only to the X, Y, or Z of the vertex you drag to. __________________ -Mike www.mtmckinley.net The Maya Toolbelt
