== Cloning Objects ==
+
The "my first vault" tutorial teaches the use of cloning and substituting objects (ctrl-f) to easily create chains of statics.
+
+
Here is why...
+
+
When objects are dragged into a interior/exterior space they are created in general space on the grid but at fairly irregular grid points. (cant yet see how its governed)
+
+
By cloning and substituting objects you can avoid having to zero the new statics. they will already be at your working elevation.
+
+
Increased placement speed. Less frustration aligning to the elevation of existing statics.

== Seams ==
+
If you have having problems with seams (ie objects clicking together) turn on snapping, select everything, and move it around, this will make it all snap together

+
== Snap To Reference ==
+
You can "snap to reference". This essentially tells the snap settings to treat the pivot point of the indicated object as the origin of the world. Therefore, with an appropriate grid settings, any new pieces you bring in will snap to that object.
