snapping to grid

Why is it, that when i create a mesh in blender the object is never aligned with the grid. This makes extruding parts dificult someimes, because the symetry isnt right to start with.

i have tried using the snapping options, but it seems impossible.

Is there a way, of inserting a mesh, to align on the grid perfect?



you can press control when you are draggins
so it will snaps

press control+shift for more detailed snapping

when you extrude (right after you’ve extruded) use the x, y or z key to aling to their respective axis.


Try creating the object from the side/top/front views. You can also create the object in 3d view, press ‘tab’ to go out from edit mode and press alt+r to clear rotation.
