The topics below demonstrate how to use the Snap-To feature in OpenVSP. Snap-To is an interactive collision detection function that enables placing components at a fixed surface normal distance from one another or to check for clearance or collision in a model. For example, a component may be rotated or translated through a range of motion to ensure that adjacent parts are not struck. Alternatively, a component may be placed a fixed distance relative to another set of components with a single click.
