Snap pivot to selection

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to mirror a mesh, but I don't know how to snap the pivot point to a particular face so that the mesh will be mirrored from that face?

Thanks,
JamesNZ

If you have to align the pivot to a face you could try this script. (Ungroup it first)

you can easily snap pivot point to vertex, holding "d" for pivot and "v" for snap.

want to model dog tags and a chain in maya

Hi everyone,
I am a budding 3d artist and have just started learning Maya 2 months back. I am modelling a character for a game which me and my programmer friend are going to make for android platform.
Can any one give me any ideas on how to model a neck chain with dog tags.
I am thinking of using polygon torus attached to a cv curve and then using animation snanpshot to complete the chain. And I have no idea on dog tags.
Please help!!
