Change Pivot

The pivot point defines the position around which objects are rotated or scaled. By default, the pivot point of a mesh or point cloud is located at its center, and of a curve at the origin. If you want to rotate an object around a specific point, you need to adjust the object’s pivot position.

To change the pivot point of an object:

  1. Select the object in the Object List.
  2. Activate any of the manipulators on the Viewbar.
  3. Enter the pivot-editing mode by pressing the Insert key.
  4. Click and drag any axis to move the pivot point.
  5. Press the Insert key again to leave the pivot-editing mode.
