Pivot point

Can anyone here tell me how I can snap my pivot point to a corner of a box? Yes I know you can snap it to the center of the object by clicking on the "Center to object" button, but I need to snap to a corner of the box, I've looked at a 100 videos none seemed to mention how to snap to any other point like a corner of the box. So, my point is, corner of the box, snap, how?

Thank you

If you press 's' you can toggle the snap mode. You can see a button toggling on and off on the main toolbar. Right click this button and select 'Pivot' and 'Vertex' checkboxes.

Snaps or Align tool. Align works when the affect pivot only mode is on and you can align to the same object. So you can align it to the max or min in any direction.

You can also use my PutPivot script here:


Which gives you a graphical interface for placing the pivot at any one of 27 predefined spots.
