The SnapSet Addon for Blender 2.8 allows us create presets for Snapping in Blender 2.8. It comes with customizable buttons and a handy pie menu. In the Pie menu we can find settings for Snapping, Pivot, Orientation and the customizable buttons.

This addon is a little bit different than other add-ons for Blender. This in the sense that it is focussed on customizable buttons. You can customize these buttons in the preferences. Next to that, there are very useful buttons in the PIE-Menu which are not customizable. These are for move, rotation, scale, set pivot point, set Axis Orientation, set Snapping Element etc.

The Pie Menu

  • On Top: Move, Rotate and Scale
  • Second row: Set the Pivot point.
  • Six buttons left: Set Snap Element.
  • Six buttons right: Set Axis Orientation

With this in mind, it is easier to use the SnapSet addon. But this is not all. In fact the addon stands out in customizable buttons. And those are the buttons you see below. You can customize there button in the preferences.

So if we need frequently have particular settings for snapping, we don’t have to click 3 buttons all the time. Instead of that we can define a button for that in the preferences. In the preferences, look for the Snap Set addon. Then under Tools, we see a big menu to do that.

Where can I download the SnapSet addon?

You can find the SnapSet addon on Github. This is a direct download. For updates, check the SnapSet addon thread on Blenderartists. The addon installs as usual. In Blender you go to Edit > Preferences > Addons > Install. Browse to the .zip file you just downloaded and press Install. Then activate the addon and refresh. Another addon that makes extensive use of Snapping listed on is the QBlocker Addon.
