    Hi,
    well, I know how to move the axis of an object. But till now I did it with converting parametric objects to polygonobjects first.
    Is it possible to move the axis of a parametric object? Or to imitate a polygonobject to temporarily move the axis? I need to rotate an object, but when creating i.e. a cube the axis is in the center of the cube. But I need the axis on the bottom of the object.
    Thanks for any help!

    It isn't possible to change the axis of parametric objects but you can place a temporary null at the place you want the axis of the paramatric object to be, make the parametric object a child of the null, do the transformations you need to the null and finaly remove the parametric object out of the null and dispose of the null itself.

    good idea Rui, thanks. Haven´t thought of that (you see I already forget the artist ideas :). Tried it but it didn´t help. It´s a bit too slow.
