    Default 3d align command in Rhino 3D?

    Please help! Does anyone know if there is a command in Rhino that aligns objects like it does in autocad's "align" command? I basically want to scale something and align it to a curve on a different cplane.

    Hi Alexa, I don't use Autocad so I don't know what it's "align" command does exactly. But: did you try TRANSFORM > ARRAY > ALONG CURVE in Rhino?

    Thank you, but that doesn't really seem to work, although I maybe using the command incorrectly.

    You actually inspired me to investigate other transformation tools, and I tried TRANSFORM>ORIENT>2 POINTS which allowed me to move my obect to the right cplane. I still need to scale it, but it saves me using the rotate command twice!

    I still need to know a better way to do this! Its not efficient enough!

    Hi Alexa, somehow my last response got lost in cyberspace
    In short: I would use the rhino plugin Grasshopper (Grasshopper - generative modeling for Rhino) to align, scale and create arrays altogether. It's a bit hard to grasp in the beginning but very useful.
    Otherwise a screenshot would be helpful to illustrate your problem.

    Thank you for your advice. I'll try grasshopper next time. It doesn't seem very hard to use... Or is that just wishful thinking?
