Snap to countertops?

Recommended Posts

Is there a setting I can change so that my dimensions will snap to the countertops (auto generated by the base cabinet) in plan view? 

 

Thanks

Maybe look at the dimension defaults?

I have countertops checked in the defaults, but the dimension always grabs onto the cabinet.

Left is a Custom Countertop, right is a OOB base cabinet.

Chief just has a hard time snapping to a lot of things. It’s random as well.

Sometimes it snaps sometimes it doesn’t, regardless of dimension defaults. 

It’s worse in elevation or cross section views.  Try snapping a dimension to a window height.... lots of aggravation and frustration. 

I’m forced to draw lines and set them at the height I need and snap to those lines. Although the story pole tool has helped greatly in this regard.

If you turn the countertops into custom countertops you should be able to snap to them easier.
