Hi, I'm new with ODE. I create a Geom with dCreateBox. I want to change the center of rotation of this Geom. I think I have tu use the geometry transform class but don't know exactely how. Can someone help me please? Thanks.

I only used ODE for one project so far, so i do not have extensive knowlegde about it, and in that project i only needed body's with the mass centered in the middle.

But i remembered a piece from the documents about the center of gravity. It's at the end of the document:

------------
13. Known Issues
When assigning a mass to a rigid body, the center of mass must be (0,0,0) relative to the body's position. But in fact this limitation has been in ODE from the start, so we can now regard it as a feature'' :)
