align points

is there anyway to get points aligned in blender or even objects?


A trick I use to ‘sort of’ align points is to use scaling. Say you want the points to be aligned along the X axis, move into an XY view, select the points and scale, middleclicking to constrain the scaling’s axis to the Y axis. You can then switch to an XZ view and repeat the process. I’m not sure how this could work with objects… but I suppose you could use the same trick, but vertex parent the objects to the points that you’re scaling.

Or extrude one vert from the object that you are not going to move. Then you have that vert and the edge to use in two views to align the object you will move.


ok i will try it out!
