Question, Z-axis Moving Objects and Rubber Stamping
Read 1578 times

I am modeling an industrial facility layout in 3D and I have to move and copy equipment to visualize where they will be in the facility.

When I move objects by clicking or dragging or rubber stamping, my object always ends up changing on the Z-axis.
(ex. I click and drag a table then it ends up 50ft above the facilities walls)

When I move objects I only want them to move in the X and Y axis.

(I know about the Delta XY&Z but that is to time consuming)

Does anyone know how I can move these objects only along the X and Y axis?

Thank you,

If you switch to the 2D Select Mode, the selected object will remain on its own Workplane when you move it.
