Snap Objects Together
Snap Objects together by seecting the two faces you want to touch (snap to surface, snapy to edge, snapt to center etc)
Hello! Snapping in 3D is a huge must for Dimension! I wanted to share two things!
First, if you haven’t tried it yet, clicking on the “pivot handle” (the white handle at the center of the gizmo) will let you drag models along the surface of other models and the ground. I’ve attached a .gif and you can learn more about the move tools in Dimension here:
Second, we’re also going to start working on some more advanced object snapping. I’ll update soon when we have progress!

I would love to see snapping as an included feature. Currently the only way to align objects to one another is by using the align function, which is very useful, but not super useful when trying to magnetize objects to one another just by dragging them. I know there's a "move aligned to surface" function when moving an object, but this rarely magnetizes correctly. I'm imagining the blue highlight like when you are snapping an object to the ground, but with other objects.

the snap is great...the actual tool needs improvement, it doesn't always snap where you want when using other 3d objects, more pivot control would be needed. Glad to hear you're working on improving the tool.

I vote for this! A lot of times we need to align a object with the surface of other. Snap to other objects will be very useful.
Also, pivot maybe need at least two more points: center left and center right.

Looking for a way to place objects onto other surfaces and snap to those surfaces.

It would be great if you could activate a tool that acts as an assistant to combine two objects by adjusting the edges to each other. Just like in Photoshop or in Premiere where it helps to combine different clips in the timeline.

Yes, some kind of 'snap' or 'Align to' x,y,z and also 'drop to floor'. At the moment you can only align using co-ordinates.
