Noticed you are able to snap object to helmet without activating the magnet. Is there a difference between activating and not activating the magnet while manipulating objects to snap to surface?
  • Found the answer online. I looked initially and could not find, reason for me asking the question. For those who may be curious; by not selecting the magnet icon to activate snapping, you can temporarily activate snap behavior by holding down the ctrl key instead while moving object. If you prefer to have it set to on as default you would select the magnet icon allowing you to freely move object with snap behavior active without the need to hold down the ctrl key. In addition, while the magnet is active holding the ctrl key temporally disables snapping.
