Tools > Options > Modeling Aids
The Modeling Aids options manage settings for grid and object snaps and construction planes.
Turns on grid snap.
See: Grid Snap, SnapSize, SetSnap.
Turns on ortho and sets the ortho angle.
See: Ortho, OrthoAngle, SetOrtho.
Turns on planar mode.
See: Planar, SetPlanar.
Temporarily suspends set object snaps.
Projects object snaps to the construction plane in the active viewport.
Projects object snaps to the construction plane in the active parallel viewport if the view is not rotated.
Object snaps work on locked objects and on objects on locked layers.
Allows object snaps to work on objects that are hidden behind other objects.
Object snaps work on objects filtered out through Selection Filter.
Object snaps work only on selected objects.
Allows snapping to mesh edges using Near, Mid, Int, and Perp object snaps
This option can be changed by the SnapToMeshes command.
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.
The Center object snap will work on objects that are close approximations of arcs, circles, and ellipses.
Highlights the object chosen for use by object snaps.
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.
For digitizers, sets the 3-D object snap activation area radius in model units. When the cursor is within this distance to the point to snap to, the marker jumps to the point to snap to.
Specifies the behavior of construction planes in the viewports.
The construction plane of each viewport is independent from all of the other constructions 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.
Restores the default system values. All custom appearance settings will be lost.
