Alignment Tool

Alignment Tools

The alignment tool allows parallel runs of various elevations to quickly and easily be adjusted. Runs may be aligned to another run, edge, or reference plane. Additionally, runs of differing sizes(height/radius) can effortlessly be aligned to the top or bottom of another run, edge, or reference plane.

NOTE: The Alignment Tool's predefined selection filter can be modified via the Selection Configuration. Please see the link in the Relevant Articles below.
