Lighting Instrument tilted without focus

Recommended Posts

I have a light instrument that functions properly with focusing and tilting but when it doesn't have a focus set it is tilted forward slightly. It isn't a huge deal but looks a little weird if it's up close. I attached a picture showing the symbol and a instance of the lighting instrument without a focus.


Thanks for any help!

Looks like sloppy work on the original symbol. You can edit the 3D and check it out.

I agree with RickR, seems like sloppy work. To be sure, you can check the "Default Instrument Angle" at File > Document Setting > Spotlight Preferences.

It looks to me like its to do with the X,Y of the locus point not being 0,0. Hard to tell though from a pic.
