8. Aligning Objects

You may think that aligning things should come before grouping, but I thought it was important to understand what grouping is before learning how aligning things works. It is important to align things if you want your print to look and function the way you expect. Here are the most important tips from this video:

1) Everything should be aligned!

2) You can align one object between two separate objects if you group the separate objects before you align the third.

Image Assessment: Create a wheel with a hole cut out of the center. Take a screenshot of your design from the "Top" view with the "Fit in view" tool focused on your wheel so that it can clearly be seen that it is aligned.
