    How did you create the skeleton? Is the OBJ grouped? Any way, use the Joint Editor tool to move the centre and endpoint, then right-click and align the bones to snap them into place. The right-click menu also has an option to snap the origin of the bone to the end point of its parent, which can simplify matters.

    A grouped OBJ is exactly as it sounds, a Wavefront OBJ imported model which is separated into individual pieces grouped together to make a whole. Adding a skeleton to a single unified mesh tends to be a bit easier.

    Yes its grouped. Is there any easier way to align bones. Currently when i align one other gets messedup and so on.

    Time to go read up on how to rig a custom figure, as borrowing the rig from another figure wont help you any, especially when they have such different default "T" poses.

    Goto Tools: Joint Editor. Right click under one of the tabs and add your tool settings. Select a bone and you will see the numerical values for the center and end points, and the offset value.

    If you select a bone, you can also use the arrows to move the center and end point manually.

    use the Scene tab to select bones if it gets confusing or difficult to select bones.
