Parenting question

When I parent to a new object, where is the default origin?

here is my .blend

when you press space, the cube parents to the new object… but I am not sure about how to effect the center etc

Put the logic on the Cube instead of the Empty, and it works properly.

Edit: Oh I didn’t see you had set up some constraints… If you put on the Physics Visualization maybe you get a better idea of what’s going on.

Edit2: Check Minimum Limits on the X-axis, shouldn’t this be -0.5 instead of -5.0? Also a tip: the Target doesn’t need to be Rigid or Static, use Sensor instead.

yeah, I fixed it earlier,
it as the 5 .5 thing
