Newb - how do I set this cylinder's origin to the origin of this cube?

I want the cylinder to rotate around the cube. And if I move the cube in the future, I want the cylinder to move with it.
How is this possible?

it’s actually very simple :

Select your cube, then go to : Object => Snap => Cursor to selected
This will put the cursor at the origin of your cube
Then select your cylinder : Object => Snap => Selection to cursor

You could use constraint too, but only if you intend to always have the cylinder orginin at the same place of the one of the cube.

Actually, I’ve just noticed a way simpler way :

Select your cylinder, then go to the constraint tab, and “add object constraint” => “copy location”, as a target, choose your cube, then apply the constraint.


great thanks :+1:
