Hello blender community!
Just a question about a problem I have with axis of a child object. It's two planes attach by a parent link to a cylinder. Cylinder is the parent, the two planes are its child.
When I want to reduce one of my 3D plane (on the left) by moving his different faces in a perpendicular fashion, I can t find the perfect perpendicular axis (even with normal or local), because the center of "gravity" mix the one of the plane and the one of the cylinder...
After Shift+Ctrl+Alt+C, and "origin to geometry" when I selected the plane alone, It's still a problem...
And of course, if I remove the relationship between the plane and the cylinder by Alt+P the plane return on its original position (witch is far away ^^) and I lose its position information, even if I lock the location X/Y/Z in transform table...
1) Is it possible to keep the position of the child object when you remove the relationship parent - child? Like that I will be able to have a good local axis of the plane.
2) Or do you have a solution to force the local axis of my plane to be as usual without noticing his relationship with the cylinder?
Thank you very much for your help +++
I'm giving you the file to help. The plane goes in an other direction after Alt + P because of the rotation I have performed with an armature before I made it the child of the cylinder.
