Somehow the location of the model I created has ended up in the work space above the global axis (where the x,y,z axis intersect). How do I easily move my model using either the 3d cursor or origin position to the global axis? I know I can move it manually but I prefer it to be exact rather than close to. Thanks

    $\begingroup$ 1) Shift+S > "Cursor to world origin". - 2) Shift+S > "Selection to Cursor" (with object selected). $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 17, 2023 at 4:51
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Chris. I will add it to my 'little black book'. I don't know why I didn't find that with a search. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 17, 2023 at 5:10

    $\begingroup$ @JohnArnold or Shift+C to get cursor to wolrd origin. Or simply select your object and press Alt+G $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Another way of moving it exact instead of manually would be to enter 0, 0, 0 in the X, Y, Z location in the object's properties in the side panel (shortcut N). And if the 3D cursor is off the world's origin, you can enter 0, 0, 0 values for it, too. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 17, 2023 at 7:39

Here's a summary of comments given:

First Shift+S > Cursor to World Origin or use shortcut Shift+C. Then press Shift+S > Selection to Cursor. This will position the selected object's Origin to the 3D Cursor. But the shortest way is to select object and press Alt+G

Another way of moving it exact instead of manually would be to enter 0, 0, 0 in the X, Y, Z location in the object's properties in the side panel (shortcut N > Item Tab > Location). And if the 3D cursor is off the World Origin, you can enter 0, 0, 0 values for it, too (N > View Tab > 3D Cursor). The manual way of entering values always helps if someone forgets all the shortcuts.

    $\begingroup$ Feel free to edit in my comment, too - the manual way of entering values always helps if someone forgets all the shortcuts ;) $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 17, 2023 at 7:43
