View Full Version : Screw loose

I have attached the object and scene files... the object in question is on layer 18 and is called TS Screw 4. Everytime I open up the scene file the object gets placed in this strange position... I move over to modler delete the object make a new layer save on same layer all sorts of things.. when I go back to lightwave it looks great. after I save and reopen the scene the screw gets placed back in this strage position...

Is it the polygons that move within the layer or the item in Layout?

The item moves in Layout

Simple, you've altered the pivot point for this layer.
Put 'screw 3' layer in BkGrnd, put 'Screw 4' in FG.
Ctrl+F10 to see pivot - note where pivot is for Screw 4.
toggle layers so Screw4 in BG. Ctrl+F10 - note how pivot for Screw3 is at 0,0,0

go to Screw 4 layer, Ctrl+F10, 'n' for numeric, set all to zero, save object - it'll be correct then.
