sometimes I need to complete tasks like in this video, any easier way to connect this vertex to edge? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVCdgss5gKI&feature=youtu.be

And also, sometimes I need to align one vertex in 3D space by using X, Y or Z of other vertex, is there any combination of keys which can do it?

  • $\begingroup$ before your cuts (if several), set pivot as active element, after the cut, make select and active the wanted vertex, then scale X (or Y or Z) 0... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ A bit better : is you start to cut from the existing vertex, it stays active after the cut : so method in the previous comment is faster $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, I know this way and it's working, but it's align both vertex to median point between them, isn't it? What if I want to align first vertex to second or second to position of first? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The key is to set the pivot point to active element first (so that this is not the median which is reached) $\endgroup$

To do that quicker,

first method

set the pivot point to active element and start your cut from the existing point (as this will keep this point active).

Then scale to 0 using the wanted axis :

enter image description here

second method

Use 'offset edge slide' Shift+Ctrl+R.

During the movement place the mouse along the shortest edge and hit E.

After that you'll need to remove doubles or merge the vertices.
