Problems / Re: How to keep objects in the same plane

Please post a sample drawing. I'm not sure what you mean by "out of plane".

Enjoy

Could you explain this a little better, I'm not sure what you mean?
Could you post a sample drawing?

Enjoy

Problems / How to keep objects in the same plane
« Last post by jawick on March 27, 2018, 11:53:01 AM »
Problems keeping multiple objects on the same plane. After creating a 3D object in say a front view, additional objects that I draw or add to that object are out of plane. How do I keep all the additional objects that I draw in the same plane as the initial object no matter the view type? I already have snap to plane checked in preferences.

I would like to know how to paste to plane, not snap to plane. Is there a difference?

Problems / Default color setting for an extrusion?
« Last post by jawick on March 27, 2018, 09:11:19 AM »
Is there a default color setting for an extrusion? Creating a lot of 3D objects and having to indicate a color to each one separately is a pain.

In the Gripper dialog box, uncheck uniform scaling, the colors of the Gripper will change and you can scale in one direction.

The Connection tool is part of the Assembly tools subset and is for moving 3D objects.

What you are looking for is the trim flyout toolbar, there you will find the Connect Curve, Extend, and Corner Trim tools. There is also a Join Curve tool but it can change your geometry and cause some odd looking extrudes, and no, it's not a bug, the program must guess how the curves are to be connected and sometimes it guesses wrong.

If you have any questions on using these tools, just ask.

Problems / Where is the connection tool?
« Last post by jawick on March 26, 2018, 06:17:27 PM »
The User Guide says that there is a connection tool under Modify/Advanced Transform. I don't see it there. Am I missing something? Where is it? I am on Mac Pro V10.0.02.  I want to connect to objects or lines at a specific point and I am thinking it might be the best way to prevent gaps when I then extrude it.
Thanks
