Vertex Snapping - Unity Quick Tip

In this Unity quick tip we'll look at how we can easily position objects using vertex snapping.

You can either watch the video version below or continue reading for written instructions.

We'll demonstrate this with a scene with two cubes as shown below.

Scene containing two cubes

If we wanted to position the cubes right next to each other we could try to move them by hand, but it's quite difficult to get right.

Another option is to use something called Vertex Snapping. 

If we hold down the V key we can select any Vertex on the Cube. We can then snap it to any Vertex on the other cube, allowing us to position objects really accurately.
