On the EasyDraw Block Worktable when setting up the Precision Bar, the Horizontal and Vertical snapping numbers control the snap grid. These numbers should be equal to, or a multiple of, your block size. The more snap points, or higher the Horizontal and Vertical numbers are, the harder it will be to see every single snap point. If EQ8 tried to show every snap point, the worktable would look like a filled space with dark dots, so don’t be nervous if you don’t see every snap because EQ8 will react accordingly to your settings. (If you have the graph paper showing this could also “hide” snap points by overlapping the same space.)

This is a 4 x 4 block and with the Horizontal and Vertical snaps set at 16, there will be a snap point every 1/4 inch (4 x 4 = 16).

EXAMPLE SNAP SETTINGS:

For a 6” by 6” block:
For snaps every inch: 6 horizontal and 6 vertical snaps (6 x 1 = 6)
For snaps every ½ inch: 12 horizontal and 12 vertical snaps snaps (6 x 2 = 12)
For snaps every ¼ inch: 24 horizontal and 24 vertical snaps (6 x 4 = 24)
For snaps every 1/8 inch: 48 horizontal and 48 vertical snaps (6 x 8 = 48)

For a 6” by 10” block:
For snaps every inch: 6 horizontal and 10 vertical snaps (6 x 1, 10 x 1)
For snaps every ½ inch: 12 horizontal and 20 vertical snaps (6 x 2, 10 x 2)
For snaps every ¼ inch: 24 horizontal and 40 vertical snaps (6 x 4, 10 x 4)
For snaps every 1/8 inch: 48 horizontal and 80 vertical snaps (6 x 8, 10 x 8)

For a 15 cm by 15 cm block:
For snaps every cm: 15 horizontal and vertical snaps (15 x 1 = 15)
For snaps every 0.5 cm: 30 horizontal and vertical snaps (15 x 2 = 30)
For snaps every 2 mm: 75 horizontal and vertical snaps (15 x 5 = 75)
For snaps every mm: 150 horizontal and vertical snaps (15 x 10 = 150)
