How to center pivot to vertices average position


#1

Hello, I want to center my pivot to the center of this circle, how do I do that?
If it’s not possible to do this with the pivot, I’d like to create a locator at the center of the circle.

you could create a cluster and snap the locator to it, then delete the cluster.

There is a for this a tool in Maya Bonus Tools. Don’t have it now open in front of me but i think it is under Modify > Move Pivot to Component Center.

You just select that inner edge border circle and run that and object pivot should be in that position too.

Select inner edges of the circle shape, modify -> convert edge to curve, center pivot the curve. display -> transform display -> show rotation axis on curve. vertex snap your pivot by holding ‘d’ and ‘v’
