Usage:

  • Origin To Mesh - move the origin to the center of the mesh vertices.
  • Mesh To Origin - move the mesh vertices to the origin
  • Set Snap Point Widget - use widget to select the point for snapping
  • Set Snap Point - save the object location or point edit selection for snapping
  • Snap Origin - move the origin to the previously selected point.

Notes:

  • The mesh origin is not visible in the standard object navigation widget.
  • The Snap Origin will remove all transformations from the object. So scale and rotation will be baked into the vertices.
