Aloha. I am trying to create an object by joining several rows of other objects created using spin dupli. Object moves along x y z axes as a single object, but when I try to rotate it the rings rotate independently or not at all. I removed doubles and converted curves to meshes of individual rows before joining. Any suggestions?

enter image description here

The rings look the same but are of differing circumference and number of pins so that object is cone shaped. The pin in background is kernel object I spin dupli-d to create each ring.

  • $\begingroup$ If that is a single object, now, it has a single own origin point. Rotation (and scaling) happens depending on the configured pivot center mode in the 3d view (in the view header, the second icon to the right of the object/edit mode selection), it can be the active object (its own pivot point), median or individual origins of several obects, the 3d cursor or the bounding box. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Not sure what to make of this post, but I tried all the pivot modes to no change $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Can you show at least a picture of that object, since it might be different from what I thought? If possible show the whole blender window, to let others spot settings, modes, etc. Otherwise post the .blend file (eg: using blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ to post a screenshot, first in Blender, use CTRL + F3 to save a screenshot. Then edit the question here, and add the saved screenshot with the "image" icon or CTRL + G $\endgroup$
