Group origin

dear all,

how do i change the origin of a group, so that when i link a group into another drawing i grab it by the correct basepoint?

You could parent your objects to an empty. That way you could move them all at the same time when you wanted to and individually when needed. Just place the empty first and then parent to objects to it afterwards so you have the empty in an easily selectable area.

i fixed it!! the problem was the the linked object’s origin was in a random place. then i realised that the original object’s basepoint was not placed at 0,0,0. so all i had to do was move it there… i hope that makes sense because i’m coming from an AutoCAD backround :slight_smile:
