When i use the copy transformation constraint, the child object snaps to the origin point of the parent object.

What i want is, when i constraint an object, the child object should remain where it is, but when i move the parent object, the child should move with it, maintaining the distance and the rotation offset between them.

  • $\begingroup$ Then why do you use constraints? copy location does exactly that: move the object to the exact same location. Just use parenting, or am I missing something? $\endgroup$ Jun 8, 2020 at 8:20
  • $\begingroup$ @Frederik Steinmetz: because a simple Copy Location won't copy the other transforms like rotation and scale. $\endgroup$

It looks like the Copy Transforms doesn't have any Offset option (I don't know why), so I guess if you want it to copy each of its target's transformation you need instead to give it a Copy Location constraint (enable the Offset option), a Copy Rotation and a Copy Scale.
