Pivot point adjustment

I want to be able to adjust the pivot point within a shape so that I can rotate the shape about this point. I have read about the shift tool but this seems to used only for groups, same goes for rotation axis tool. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for any tips.

Just worked out how to get what I want, more or less, I was hoping to just be able to snap the pivot point to a selected point in a shape but it seems I have to move the whole shape to the pivot point.


Check out the Shift Tool. In particular look for “Using Alternate Keyboard Functions” for the Shift tool. Seems to me there was a tutorial that helped with that. Probably the Microsoft Train Simulator tutorials which I can’t seem to find at the moment. The Pivot Point in 3DC is essentially a “Group”.
