BricsCAD Lite; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM


Alias: SN

Sets the cursor snapping increments either by specifying the x and y values or between two points, the rotation and the style.


There are three methods to set snapping increments:

  • By specifying a single value for both the X and Y axis.
  • By specifying a distance between two points as a value for both the X and Y axis.
  • By specifying the spacing independently for the X and Y axis.
Note: Independent X and Y spacing work only in the Standard snap style.
