Move pivot to bottom.
show user profile  topofsteel
I have thousands of objects with the pivot centered. Is there an easy way to align the pivot to the bottom of the object? Thanks.

I suppose you could line up all of the objects so their base is touching 0 (on the z-axis) then select all, press "adjust pivot button" then right-click on the z-axis slider.

Else...

No other way I can think of.

Thank you both for your reply. I came back to post a solution I found. I'll also check that link out. Thanks.

for obj in selection do
obj.pivot = obj.center

for obj in selection do
obj.pivot.z = obj.min.z
