There are many ways to do that depending on how you want to make the connection. The Corner Trim, Extend, Connection, and Join tools are all possibilities. Even dragging a fence around an endpoint and then dragging the small red square to where you want it. Could you post some 2D sample geometry to be connected and we can discuss the options with more specificity.

I know about the connection tool for solids, but how do I connect two objects at a given point in 2D?

You need to select "User Positioned" to get those boxes. Using the gripper is context sensitive after you start moving an item a Distance box will appear in the data window where an exact distance can be entered, likewise, if you rotate then an angle box will appear.

Start a new topic if you want to continue the Gripper discussion in depth.

Thanks Mitch

I think I can position countersunk holes where I want them, though the edge highlighting is not always obvious. Undoing the hole is easy and the wireframe does help sometimes.

I have been trying to work through the manual to get used to using the Gripper and all is OK until I get to Gripper Positioning on page 53. I canít find how to set the five positioning options shown. Could you help, please (should this be a new thread?)

Could you post a sample file here for us to test with? Describe which wall and tools you are using when the program crashes.

Have you tried using McMaster-Carr. Find the part you need and click on the blue part number, then Product detail. On the right side of this page, there will be a list of CAD formats to download. SAT is TC's native format, but DWG/DXF and STEP are also options.

Would like to add, there is a flange tool in the program.

Problems / Re: way to save shortcuts to reimport

Mitch I am not sure how giving a link to a new build is answering the question?

No, has nothing to do with the question at hand, just thought you would like to know.

I am very glad you are continually upgrading TC and you do it quite frequently.

I do some programming but not on this program. I have no connection to IMSI, I'm just another user like you.

Is there anyway at present or in the future of getting a print out of the the short cuts?

In the Shortcut Manager dialog box, there is a print and assigned box for this purpose.

You are looking for XForm utils. You will find "Align" there. Using the letter X in place of "trans" is an idiosyncrasy of the English language.
