Hi all,
I want to move a polygon with his axis to Y=0 and let the polygon
stay above it?
To move the axis to 0 is no Problem.
But what do I have to do that the polygon will stay above?

Any ideas.

Thanks a lot

it seems there is no dedicated function to do this. You can edit the axis of an point object by moving the object and then transform the points of the object:

  if op == None:  
  if op.IsInstanceOf(c4d.Opoint) == False:  
  # the offset of the axis  
  offset = c4d.Vector(100,0,0)  
  # move object  
  m = op.GetMg() = + offset  
  # transform points  
  padr = op.GetAllPoints()  
  pcnt = op.GetPointCount()  
  for i, point in enumerate(padr) :  
      point = point - offset  

In a more complex situation you may have to work with a offset matrix.

best wishes,
