Snapping to a Single Axis
When you need to a snap Objects to a vertex on a target object, simply :

[1] press [w] for Translate(move)
[2] select the object
[3] press & hold the [v] key (snap)
[4] click on the the target vertex.

This will align all 3 axis to the vertex you selected.

To snap an Object to a single axis simply :

[1] press [w] for Translate(move)
[2] select the object
[3] press & hold the [v] key
[4] click on the axis of the Translate Manipulator you wish to align
[5] click on the the target vertex.

This will align the axis you selected on the Manipulator to the vertex you selected.

   Curves101 : Modelling   

This tutorial introduces the anatomy of the NURBS curves in MAYA and the tools available for creating and modifying the curves.

[level basic]

MAYA allows you to create and edit Curves with 2 basic tools Control Vertices (CV) and Edit Points (EP). We will examine the Tools in detail later in this Tutorial. Let us start by explaining exactly how the shape of a curve is defined.

All Curves in MAYA are ultimately defined using Control Vertices (CV) Edit Points (EP) just provide you with an alternative method of editing the curve. Therefore, as Control Vertices (CV) are the backbone of Curves, it is very important to understand how work.
