I'm using the online free version of sketchup, and after adding several objects and moving them around, I can't quite seem to get two objects to line up (snap) exactly onto each other. How do I get objects to line up perfectly?
If I move the objects as close as possible to one another, visually, and then use the measuring tool to confirm distances, I get a distance of
0" displayed, even though there is a clearly visible gap.
N.B: I've added an arbitrary line, 3/8" apart, just for scale. But notice how the visible gap shows up as 0"
I'm using a grid that is 1/16" (the possible settings go as low as 1/64 ), and objects seem to move in 1/16" increments. I've done all the sketching at 1/16".
The objects are 1/16" apart here:
If I move the horizontal piece closer to the vertical piece by "one notch", I still end up with a minute noticeable gap, but as the top image shows, its real measurement is 0":
If I keep moving another notch, then the overlap is clear, confirming that the previous "notch" was as close as I could get it:
I'm only working with 90degree angles. And I've tried moving the two pieces independently in the hope of "resetting" the grid, with no noticeable change.
Just in case, I'm showing a snapshot of my 'view' settings here:
