- Click to attach your new point.
Setting the grid
Before using the grid, make sure your units are set correctly in the menu Edit → Preferences → General → Units. For example, "MKS (m/kg/s/degree)" is good for dealing with distances typical in modelling buildings; "Standard (mm/kg/s/degree)" is good if you need to model details in smaller parts; setting 4 decimals is good to consider small fractions of a meter or millimeter.
Make sure you use Draft ToggleGrid to show a grid with enough resolution for your modelling needs. You can change the grid properties in the menu Edit → Preferences → Draft → Grid and snapping → Grid. For example, lines at every 50 mm, with major lines every 20 lines, and 1000 lines in total (the grid covers 50 meters) is good for modelling buildings; use lines at every 1 mm and 1000 lines in total (the grid covers 1 meter) if you are modelling small parts.
