quick newbie question

Is there a shortcut for centering a selcted object to the origin?

And, is there a way of centering one oject within another, i.e. making their center points coincide?


What do you mean by “origin”? In Blender it’s the point in Global space where the object was first added. If that’s what you mean then Alt-G.

If you want the mesh to return to the Object Center (little sphere) then F9, Mesh tab, the 3 Center buttons.

You can center one Object on another (or a mesh on some other selected item in edit mode) with the Shft-S menu; Cursor to Selected, then Selected to Cursor.
