Maya Align Tools are Really Useful but Hidden

FlippedNormals Peers Into Maya’s Often Underlooked Align Tools.

As vast as high-end 3D applications are, you can guarantee that there will be extremely useful smaller features that will be overlooked. Maya is no exception to that. Maya has some great snapping and transformational tools, and most of them have been there since pretty much the beginning. One such overlooked suite of tools is the Align tools.

The duo at Flipped Normals do a great roundup of the Align tools in Maya, and how they work and how you can use them in your modeling workflows. The tools are housed under an “align” section in the Modify Menu of Maya and are fairly intuitive to use. One thing is for sure, they can be really helpful too.
