About Aligning and Snapping Objects

In the real world, objects touch each other to form other objects. A room, for example, is formed by multiple adjoining walls. You can use Maya’s alignment tools to line up objects and components (Figure 6.20), saving the additional steps it would take to align objects by eye and eliminating the uncertainty over whether the objects actually touch each other.

Figure 6.20. You can align one point on one surface to one point on another surface. Here one point on each surface has been selected and the point-to-point command has been run, so that now the two select points are on top of each other (inside the square).
