I am making a barrier, like in a parking  "the barrier opens" and a car drives trough. Than the barrier closes again. (NL slagboom)

I made a sketchup model of the barrier and exported 2 parts: the column - and the barrier

Now i am not able to rotate the barrier on the axis at the and of the barrier  - in advanced movie. It rotates around it center....so i cannot chang the pivot point of the barrier

I tried adjusting the axis in sketchup, but that didn't work

so all i want is a movie where my barrier opns, and closes ?

Anyone to help me?
thnx

Hi wanro0272, before we proceed, could you please add your Lumion license number to your forum profile page.

Hi wanro0272, the pivot point that is used for imported objects in Lumion is 0,0,0 in SketchUp. If your barier object is far away from this position or centered around it, the pivot point will indeed be wrong.

You need to move the barrier object so that the point that it will rotate around is at 0,0,0.

Please zip + attach the SketchUp file to your next reply if you are unable to get it to work.

Which version of SketchUp are you using?
