I'd like to select a vertex, then select several other vertices and make them somehow aligned with the first one by e.g. Z axis.

Here is example picture of what I have - the highlighted vertices are ones which I'd like to align.

If possible can someone explain me how to do it. If it is not, could you provide a good alternative.

  • $\begingroup$ I solved using S Z and entering values using the keypad. I do not know if this is the best way, I hope this helps others. $\endgroup$ – Angel Angel May 12 '16 at 20:42

The best way is to select the vertices that you want to be aligned. Then press s to scale, press z to constrain to the z-axis. Then type zero and press enter. Then all of the vertices will be "flat" or aligned along the z-axis.

If you want to select verticies aligned with one original vertex on an axis, first, click Numpad 5 to enter orthographic view. Then consider which axis you want, and click another of the following Numpad values.

Numpad 1: Select on y-axis.

Numpad 3: Select on x-axis.

Numpad 7: Select on z-axis.

Key Z to enter wireframe mode. Lastly, key B and drag your mouse while holding the left button to draw a box around the vertex.
