How to snap and align an object to the 3d cursors position and rotation? I’m pretty sure I have done this before and it was straight forward. but I can’t get this to work now at all. Via the shift - S menu I can snap the poistion, but none of the commans affect the rotation.

The align tools don’t seem to want to play nice with the 3d cursor at all.

any suggestions?

  • $\begingroup$ yes. In 2.8 you can align it to a surface, or the view, or a custom transform. $\endgroup$

Snap position to cursor will be find in the shift+s menu. To copy the cursor's rotation go to Object>Transform>Align to Transform Orientation and select Cursor in the pop-up menu. enter image description here
