# how can I make droplets placed on a cup properly? [duplicate]

I am trying to achieve a scene where a cup of glass covered with droplets. I'm using particles system and a group of droplets from separate layer, to make it possible, but I can't get droplets appear with correct direction. I was wondering what kind of settings should be done to fix this problem, please see the screenshots below

• I have tried changing the positions of each droplets in the group, but didn't work
• I have tried changing the rotations under the particles but couldn't reach a good result

• Ah, remember that when rotation is enabled in particle settings > render the objects should be aligned with +X (yes, it's weird like that). If I rotate the droplet objects 90 degrees on the Z it works as expected. – gandalf3 Jan 13 '15 at 11:40
