problems with objects from sketchup

Postby Taholmes160 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:09 am

hi again

I often use props from sketchup in my scenes b/c of their easy availibility. this works great except that most times the 3d manipulator (the thing with the 3 arrows) is located some distance from the actual object, making transforms and positioning difficult can someone please tell me how to get this to behace correctly?

thanks

Unrelated, but a question I've wanted to ask about sketchup for a while and can't find the answer to: Does the free version of sketchup have the photo match feature?

Assuming you are talking about Blender, you can do (in Object mode, with the object selected): Object → Transform → Origin to Geometry. This should put the manipulator in a sensible place.
