I am coming to Maya from Max for a new job and I have a question. I am trying to move an edge along an angle and aligning that edge to another mesh in the scene. In max I would use edge constraint the snap the edge to the other mesh. The edge would snap to the required height while sliding along the mesh constrained to the edge. In maya whenever I attempt to snap the edge constraint is disabled and thus the edge doesn't slide it just deforms the mesh to align the edge to the mesh I am snapping to.
In short I am using the constraint in Maya "Transform Constraints - Edge" which works fine but disables when holding the V button for point snapping. I have tried the edge slide tool but the snapping option doesn't apply to other meshes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
