Cheers for the reply but i don't think i made things clear enough. Moving the pivot does not change the angle of the plane around which the object rotates... therefore when i if i move the pivot to somewhere on the edge of the coffin lid, the rotation axis still dictates that it rotates around the world x-axis for example, but the coffin edge does not follow this x-axis. I then have to spend ages rotating a bit in each axis until i get the right position
Sorry for the confusion... think i might be missing something obvious.
