I am trying to follow the last example of this post, but I do not know how to anchor the tip of the cone to the center of the sphere. Whenever I rote the cone, it rotates through its mass center instead of the center of the sphere

Just choose 3D Cursor for the pivot point. This uses the cursor which is in the center of the sphere.

pivot point selections

Active Element should also work but in Object mode only. Because you're in Edit mode and have selected a face so it does not use the object's origin (orange dot) but the face.

  • $\begingroup$ If you want to rotate round the tip, select the vertex at the tip rather than the bottom face! $\endgroup$
