Q : How can I move the pivot point of a model in Maya ?

Well, there are two ways to do this.

  1. Select your model in object mode and hit W or click on the Move tool.
  2. Hit the INSERT key ( the move tool indicator now changes )
  3. Move the pivot point
  4. Hit the INSERT key again to get back to the original position.
