I can't get correct orientation with attached to the hair object.

The arrows should look in different directions (like on picture 2), but I have them like hair (picture 1)

In Particle Properties > Rotation > Orientation Axis set the Normal or Normal-tangent, should solve this problem, but did not.

Particles rotation result

  • $\begingroup$ Rotate Arrow in X -90 and Apply Rotation (Ctrl+A). In general - Object for particles should be in positive Y direction ... I would also expect positive Z, so don't ask me why :) $\endgroup$

Select your arrow. Tap on Tab to go to edit mode.

Tap A to select all.

Tap R X -90 to rotate.

Done.
