Move in one plane from top to bottom of other shape without losing position

#1

I have created a solid and I want to move it from the top of a shape to the bottom, please can you tell me how I achieve this?

Several ways. One is to use an edge to follow and a second is to use the up arrow to lock to the blue axis, then inference the edge.

and of course you could always just flip them along the blue axis.

Thanks for your replies.

I didn’t know about using the up arrow to constrain, that’s going to be pretty useful.

I couldn’t get the move tool to work as described and demonstrated without using the up arrow, not sure why. Any idea?

Also, I notice in your demonstrating that the circle doesn’t have lots of lines around it (unlike mine), why is this?

Just wondering whether this is the right place for this thread? It is less a technical problem, more how to use Sketchup.
