Adjusting Axis

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to adjust the axis on the object, where for example: the axis starts in the corner of a cube and I want to adjust the Y only, so the end result of the axis sits in the middle of the cube at the bottom?

I am aware of the object axis tool but is there a tool, where I click on and it will center bang on of the object and not middle of the whole object!

Hope this makes sense.
Cheers,
+Z

I don't believe there is any more developed way to adjust the axis beyond the object axis tool. What does center bang mean?

Sorry my bad, I meant to say is there a way to make it perfect in the middle instead by manually doing it by hand, which could be off by a few pixels. Auto align to center on Y, X or Z.

Use the Axis Tool and in the coordinates palette select Object(Rel) enter 0 for all position and rotation coordinates. That ought to do the trick.

Thank you Eddy,

Actually there is a tool that does exactly what the OP requested: the Axis Center tool (Structure>Axis Center). It does some other neat tricks, too.

Hey Adam,
Well, I never noticed that feature before and yet I use the other features. Always learning new features in software which I have been using for years! lol

Cheers fella!
