Snap Tool

The snap tool is an extension that allows the user to “snap” to specific increments for exact rotations and alignments. To enable or disable snap, simply click the toolbar icon to toggle it back and forth. To edit the settings of the snap, simply right click the icon to set.

Option

Result

x/y/z Position

The number of units in Centimeters to use for Incrementing Snap Position

x/y/z Rotation

The number of degrees to use for Incrementing Snap Rotation

Scale

The number of scalar value to use for Incrementing Snap Scale

Note: The snap tool in Omniverse is a relative snapping tool. This means that the snap will be incremental to whatever your current position/rotation/scale is. For example, if you have an object rotated 1 degree then set snapping on for 90 degree increments, the rotation will be 91, 181, 271, etc.
