Move a cylinder to contact a plane in tangent

How to move a cylinder component with its cylinder face contacting a plane in tangent?

Can you upload a SketchUp file that shows what you are starting from? In general, I would grab the cylinder and a vertex or along an edge (expose Hidden Geometry if you find that makes it easier) and then move the cylinder to the plane watching for the message indicate on face.

Got it. Thanks a lot!

How do I move a cylinder to make its end contact a plane without changing its axis location? Or move a cylinder along its axis for a fixed distance?

As before, please upload a file that shows what you are trying to accomplish.

Start moving it, let go of the mouse, and type the desired distance.

It sounds to me as if you need to spend some time with the basic videos.

Yes, I am new to SketchUp. Thanks for your help!
