Hi, im trying to set up an animation of a torque wrench tightening a bolt.

problem is i cannot find out how to set the rotation axis accuratly at the centerline of the bolt (or any central axis that is not a physical line)

Click the bolt

 

Click the Move component

 

Holding Ctrl, select the wrench (if it's more than one part, use the canvas)

 

Rotate away!

If you select an object with a hole, say a nut, the Move component will automatically align to the centre of the nut.

 

Don't forget, you can chose any object on your model to align your axis to.
