The Modeling Aids options manage settings for grid and object snaps and construction planes.
Grid Snap on
Turns on grid snap.
Ortho Snap every ___ degrees
Turns on ortho and sets the ortho angle.
Planar mode on
Turns on planar mode.
Disable object snaps
Temporarily suspends set object snaps.
Project object snaps to CPlane
Projects object snaps to the construction plane in the active viewport.
Snap to locked objects
Object snaps work on locked objects and on objects on locked layers.
Use apparent intersections
The Intersection object snap does not need to find objects that intersect in 3-D space. The objects only need to appear to intersect in the active viewport.
Object snap highlight
Highlights the object chosen for use by object snaps.
Snap radius ___ pixels
Sets the object snap activation area radius in pixels. When the cursor is within this distance to the point to snap to, the marker jumps to the point to snap to.
Dynamic object snap display
Controls the appearance of the object snap label.
Note: Turning on cursor tooltips turns off object snap labels automatically.
Black on white
Displays black lettering in a white box.
White on black
Displays white lettering in a black box.
Turns off dynamic object snap display.
Specifies the behavior of construction planes in the viewports.
Standard construction planes
The construction plane of each viewport is independent from all of the other constructions planes.
Universal construction planes
The behavior of the construction planes in the viewports is linked. They all share the same origin and are positioned normal to each other. Moving, rotating, or otherwise changing the construction plane in one viewport, changes the construction planes in the other viewports, so the 90-degree/right angle/normal orientation of the construction planes is maintained.
If a construction plane is defined in some view, the Front view for example, and Universal mode is enabled, then the construction plane that was defined will be the Front plane of the new universal plane.
