activer la grille (magnétique) et l'accrochage


Explanation:
dans le domaine de la CAO, 'grid' correspond à 'grille magnétique' qui permet de positionner les objets 3D et 'snap' à l'accrochage aux objets 3D déjà positionnés sur la grille.

Explanation:
On trouve généralement turn on snap to grid = aligner sur la grille.
