    Hi,
    I am looking for a way to rotate an object around multiple pivot point.
    I currently rotate around the world origin. but, now I also want to rotate around a different point.
    Has anyone a clue how to manage that ?

    Thanks
    :bye:

    Hi,

    you can setup multiple cameras in your 3D editor, and switch between them with the set active camera puzzle.

    Another way is to have a single camera and set its pivot with the look at puzzle.

    Hi Yuri,
    Its not about the camera, or the pivot point of the cam.
    I illustrate a bit more clearer.
    I am working on a lasercut lamp configurator.
    Configurator and I use the center to make a cirucular pattern so the user can choose the number of segments.
    Now, for the last slider is the function to rotate the segment around another pivot point needed. see the image below, the empty is the second pivot point.

    I tried it with a parent, but that didn’t work out.
    I am sure there is a workaround

    Sorry I misread your post in the first place.
    You can indeed parent your object to an empty. Then you can unparent it and parent to another empty representing a new pivot point.

    Hi Yuri,
    I am still struggling with this part of my app.
    Array

    So Now I first rotate the base part at a certain angle.
    Then making it a child of an empty (called SegementParent) and trying to clone and rotate that… But that doensn’t take the child with it.

    Any suggestions ?

    making it a child of an empty (called SegementParent)

    from the puzzles it looks like SegmentParent is made a child of an object?

    Yeah, I tried to switch them before, but that removed everything. Its a bit confusing, cause you read (a) parent to (b).
    Anyway, after some fiddling, i got the result I wanted.

    But I think I made it way to complex.
    Thanks.

    If anyone has a suggestion to make it simpler, I am all ears.
