    Default Center of Face Snap

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,

    I have two boxes and I want to move one to the center of another. In Autocad, I normally use the center of face snap. I am new to 3ds Max. I have activated the Snap Toggle (3 Magnet) and choose only CENTER FACE. However each time the pointer is on the object to be move, only the center of half of the face is selected. The face is actually divided into 2 triangles and the snap treat each as a separate face.

    Please advise. Thanks.

    Try using the 'Align' tool instead of snapping. Here's a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aDXpnMvZ1Y
