SnappingGecko is a free Grasshopper plugin which provides object snapping features, helping you to keep your definitions clean.
This plugin has been thought for users by user : While growing up, Grasshopper definitions always tend to get as messy as a noodle plate ! SnappingGecko enables you to align components while moving or resizing, assisted by magnetic guides to the sides or centers of other close components, or aligned with the cables linked to the moving component.
SnappingGecko can be entirely customized (changing guides color, line type, thickness, strength, …) to fit your Grasshopper experience straight from the Grasshopper Preferences dialog.
It also comes with a new menu, providing fast access to the main features and can even support keyboard shortcuts.
New in v1.1.0 :
The core mechanism has been modified to be more transparent and leave all Grasshopper built-in features unchanged, enabling original Alt+drag copy feature, shift+drag ortho mode.
This new version also enables snapping when resizing components (such as panels and sliders), bringing a new level of cleanliness in your definitions
