how to change axis (noob problem)

How can i change my axis of my object? so that instead of rotating around a certain point on the map it rotates around the center of the object.

Make sure that only the object that u wish to rotate is selected and nothing else.:smiley:

it is i have my object (gun) selected. It is the only object i have on the screen right now. My gun is made up of multiple peices which i joined together (i dont know if that has anything to do with it).
the gun still rotates funny.

you may ahve to recalculate the center point again

go to F9 and select Center new


Put the cursor where you want to be the point around which you will rotate your object. Then select cursor pivot.
