How do you accurately locate a circle

I’m trying to locate a circle on my drawing, and it seems like I just have to eyeball it

Hi Gary, 

Think of uMake more as a sketching/ ideation app versus a full featured CAD app. The idea behind uMake has always been to make 3D easy for anyone while also enabling anyone to make very cool, detailed content- and to do this we started with the idea of 3D sketching. We've only recently introduced dimensions to uMake and we have a lot more pro features coming. 


Moving most things in uMake is about eyballing. There are snap controls which you can access from quick menu or side panel, that can help with snapping to grid, snapping to curves, or snapping to middle of an object. Those can be helpful. With dimensions you can also double tap to select an object, then move it a bit, then tap on the green oval to give the exact displacement you are seeking. So between snapping and using dimensions, you can pretty accurately locate certain objects. 

I hope that is helpful.
