Object Origin

Each object has an origin point. The location of this point determines where the object is located in 3D space. When an object is selected, a small circle appears, denoting the origin point. The location of the origin point is important when translating, rotating or scaling an object. See Pivot Points for more.

The color of the origin changes based on the selection state of the object.

Definir origem



Modo de Objeto


Object ‣ Set Origin

The object origin and geometry can be moved relative to each other and to the 3D cursor.

Geometria para origem

Move o modelo para a origem e desta maneira a origem do objeto também estará no centro do objeto.

Origem para a geometria

Moves the origin to the center of the object.

Origem para o cursor 3D

Move a origem do modelo para a posição do cursor 3D.

Origem para o centro da massa

Move a origem para o centro de massa calculado do modelo (assumindo que a malha possua uma densidade uniforme).
