Align Tool

Align Tool

The Align Tool, located in the Model tab, lets you align objects or groups of objects along the X, Y, or Z axes.

Key benefits include:

  • Align the center or edge of multiple objects in one action.
  • Dynamically preview the point of alignment before confirming.
  • Align entire Model|Models or parts within them relative to other parts, all while keeping the model intact.


The alignment mode can be set to either Min, Center, or Max.


Align In


The World or Local option specifies which relative coordinates to align on. This is especially useful for aligning parts which don’t share the same orientation/rotation.


The X, Y, and Z checkboxes let you select which axes to align on. Note that multiple axes can be selected in a single alignment operation.

Relative To

An alignment operation can be relative to either the Selection Bounds or the Active Object.

Selection Bounds

Selection Bounds aligns the selected objects relative to the bounding box around them.

Active Object

Active Object aligns the objects relative to the last selected object. This object is outlined in orange and it will not move during the operation. While parts are selected, you can switch the active object by clicking on a different object.
