I only want to move it, and not change its size, which means ResizeAlign plugin doesn’t help here much.
I tried using Roblox’s Align Tool, but for some reason it only aligned the part with its outer plane, which is not what I want to achieve.
Is there any plugin, similar to @stravant’s ResizeAlign plugin, but one that moves instead of resizing?
It’d be super convenient if I I could just click on the planes of parts for it to align them together, but I couldn’t find a “MoveAlign” plugin.
I’d prefer to avoid disabling move increment and just “slamming” the part against a surface with the Move tool, as that isn’t quite precise. I also want to move the part in one axis, so I don’t want to just drag it onto a surface.
I’d prefer a more direct method, that actually targets the alignment plane, instead of relying on physics to find it blindly. (what I mean is that physics can sometimes “overshoot” the plane by a bit, ending in a part that’s actually intersecting, instead of it being aligned.
I didn’t exactly use your suggestion (since looking in properties to get something so easy right just isn’t what I’m after), but it gave me an idea that’s fast enough for me.
I basically duplicate the part that I want to align, drag it onto the plane I want to align to, and then just use ResizeAlign to align one plane to the target plane, and the back plane to the back plane of the dragged part:
This way I don’t have to actually move the original part out of the axes it’s positioned on, while getting the end result to be aligned with the surface I wanted it to be.
