Is it possible to move your pivot point on a prop in Poser?  I made an object in Hexagon but it does not retain the new pivot point that I gave it.  The pivot point goes back to the center of mass center.

Yes, open the Joint Editor (Ctrl+Shift+J) and enter the coordinates of the Center Point.

For a prop in Poser you just need to edit the x-, y- and z-offset parameters.

Hi Richard, I the Poser manual I can only find the term ‘offset parameters’ pertaining to the uv mapping and texture.  Is this what you mean or is there another area where I can make these changes?

Located the joint editor through the Window tab and moved the center point that way.  Never found the offset parameters that affected the center of mass.  Thanks both for the help.
