I have a large number of objects floating at different heights and would like to have them all drop to a floor so their bottoms are all level. Is there an easy quick way to do that? To drag each one into alignment will be… a drag. I wish I could just put a plane down and hit the “drop all selected to floor” button - but I can’t find that button.
Thanks for any clues.
- Click on the “move object centers only” button
- Select all desired objects
- Press S–>>Z–>>0 ("S"cale the objects centers in the “Z” direction to “0”)
- tweak as necessary
Note: This will align the object centers, To align the lowest plane is difficult (a.k.a. I don’t know how)
Thanks to all, especially Tynka Topi. I got the Align Add-On working (not sure if I have the latest or best). Found that it alligned all objects by their tops, so I rotated them all to upside down, aligned them and rotated them back. Whole operation took about 30 seconds. Thanks again.
There are Min and Max options also, Min is the lowest point of object and Max is top.
To drop object to the table…
[ ]X [ ]Y [X]Z
[ ]Max [ ]Center [ ]Pivot [X]Min
[X]Max [ ]Center [ ]Pivot [ ]Min
Yes! And I also discovered the ‘Curs’ setting in the ‘advanced’ settings so they align with the curser. Thanks again Tynka Topi. I will be using this often.
