Is there some way to constrain moving the control points of a tube to one axis?
For instance, I have a tube snapped to a surface and, want to move the control point directly away from the surface (e.g., on the Z axis, with the normal). If I snap to a front orthographic view and, move the control point, it does move on the Z axis but, may also move on the X and Y axis in ways I am not expecting.
I tried putting another surface facing the surface with the snapped tube, thinking that it would snap to the opposing surface when moved orthographically in one axis. However, it does not.
I am pretty new to Nomad Sculpt and, 3D modeling in general. I am probably missing or misunderstanding something. I can make it work by fiddling stuff around. I found that switching a point temporarily to angular (black dot) makes it less likely to move on the undesired axes. Any suggestions?
