I have some imported objects whos orientation all over the place. I would like to position it and RESET its orientation to my XYZ I have tried GROUPING it and it just orientated to in a other weird direction.
Is there any way to reset an object orientation?
I often work orientations by visually, individually rotating object on its axes and at same time visually watching the properties tab to see what the position and rotation numbers are doing….to give me an idea where to change numbers to what value.
So then I move or rotate on one axis and get it close to desired position and then enter the specific number desired.
Example rotating close it says - 176.5 degrees and I change it to -180.
And sometimes the reverse works better…..go to the numerical vales and “spin” one axis using numbers arrows and see what moves where, then pick a typical value like 90 degrees.
If the incoming objects final position turns out to NOT be a std direction….then I use the 4 view and align object to the grids or world space.
