Set origin or pivot of mesh

Recommended Posts

Ello guys!

 

I'm in dire need to set a origin of a mesh to something other than it's original values! This is to make it rotate at a specific spot. :3

 

Anyone know how to do this? I know there is "setPivotMatrix", but don't know how that workses. :D

You can create an empty object, then attach this to a mesh by adjusting its position. so when you move the points, the mesh will follow.

var EmptyPivot = new BABYLON.Mesh("pivos", scene);
MyMesh.parent = EmptyPivot;
EmptyPivot.position.y = 5.0;

and for setPivotMatrix, I think that's the way it is used :

var matrix = new BABYLON.Matrix.TranslationToRef(0, 5, 0, MyMesh.getPivotMatrix());
MyMesh.setPivotMatrix(matrix);
