### Review

Go into pivot mode and select axis. Press the Insert key on your keyboard to go into pivot mode. aboutallpet Then left click on the axis to align (it should turn yellow)

### Thanks

Hello, I would like to thank you for sharing this interesting information. Moreover, the material mentioned here will be useful for a lot of people. Personally I will use it in my kakadu national park sample task.

Here are some important knowledge which is about how to rotate pivot to align with edge of line. This method is simplified here in detail and tell you that you like it in best custom writings reviews way because we describe it in good way for only your helping purpose.

### .

```(
selObjsArr = selection as array
for obj in selObjsArr do
(
p1 = getKnotPoint obj 1 1
p2 = getKnotPoint obj 1 2
dir = normalize (p2 - p1)
vec = obj.transform[1]
tm = obj.transform
vec = normalize vec
dir = normalize dir
rtm = angleaxis (acos (dot vec dir)) (normalize (cross dir vec))
tempObjTM = translate (rotate (scalematrix tm.scale) (tm.rotation*rtm)) tm.pos
--
worldAlignPivot obj
rotation = inverse tempObjTM.rotation
in coordsys local obj.rotation *= rotation
obj.objectoffsetrot *= rotation
obj.objectoffsetpos *= rotation
obj.pivot = p1
)
)```

### Very handy

Very handy, Thanks

### you should try align pivot to

you should try align pivot to direction script.
