this may be a simple question but i dont know the answer to it:
i need to rotate an object on an axis that is different than the three default. i tried to rotate the pivot point but that didnt work. and if i try to use more than 1 axis it looks bad. is this possible? basically i need to rotate along the black arrow.

From what I can tell, under modify>rotate>rotate pivot, will work. I think you need to click on add to rotation and just click ok. Now your HPB will show different values when you click on rotate. Note this is for ver 8. I do not know if the same is true for 7.5.

i tried rotating the pivot in both 7.5 and 8.0 to no avail. guess i need to come up with another solution.
