# Setting anchor point on cube

 Setting anchor point on cube on Feb 17, 2015 at 9:10:59 pm

I've created essentially a cube that rotates to reveal the answer on a large game show board. I can't get the cube to stay in place when it rotates. I set the anchor point, and want a super tight flip. Instead, it's making a wide rotation. It's been a while since I've done something like this and just can't remember. Can anyone help?

The cube will obviously be a GROUP made up of 6 squares, no? Then you simply need to place the anchor point of the group in the middle of the cube (with the 3D transform tool) and then of course rotate the group.

I have the cube in a group, but when I rotate it, it has a really wide rotation. I need a tight rotation so it looks like the cube is literally spinning back 90 degrees to reveal an answer.

If your anchor point is in the middle of the cube, then that's what it will rotate around. As with any object in Motion. If it's rotating wrong, your anchor point is wrong. I don't know what else to say.
