Changing the Center of an Object


#1

Hello!

A couple of students are interested in changing the center of an object so that when it turns it’s not based turning on its center, such as a door. Is there a way to change the center of an object?

Thanks!

Do you use Blockly? If yes, there is a special “turn” block in the “Transitions” category where you can change the local center of rotation using a vector. Here is an example using a door:

blockly

door-open

Yes, we use Blockly. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! We will check this out!

Thank you so much! This helped me in my class! My students were so excited when they learned how to go into a house that they created.
