Align face or plane

Being used to assemblies in Solidworks the feature I miss most in Shapr3D is an align function. Just being able to select faces instead of only points with the translate tool would be a great improvement, but a step further would be if bodies had their own planes that could be used with the translate tool. If bodies had an x,y,z plane by default and could contain additional planes derived from default planes most alignment issues would be dealt with.

Hi @chrisbeale, this is something that we are actively working on, already in the design/implementation phase. I hope it will be shipped soon.

Thanks Istvan, I have to say that Shapr3D is working well for me. I’m able to do about 60% of my regular CAD work on my iPad which is very handy whilst travelling or blu-skying designs. Alignment has been the only real issue for me since your software has matured. The jobs I cannot use Shapr 3D for mostly involve sheet metalwork, requiring unfolded parts for laser cutting. I guess that will come in time, but for now thanks for your work.
