View Full Version : Imported object in Layout: Sometimes with Position Offset, sometimes without...?

I have a multi-layer .lwo that I have imported into Layout. Almost all of the object layers contain no position offset- everyone is at (0, 0, 0). However, a few layers have a very small offset:

X: -69.8225mm
Y: 612.2894mm
Z: 0

This is strange (from my p.o.v.) on its own, however if I import the object layer on its own, it comes in without the offset (0, 0, 0), however it is not in the location I need it to be. The mesh seems to be centered about the origin in Layout. The actual model is not centered on the origin as definied in Modeler.

Any thoughts on why this happens or how to fix it?

Discovered that some layers had their pivots offset in Modeler. This however does not explain why it respects the reset pivot if imported as part of a multi-layered object, but ignores the offset if the object layer is imported on its own...
