This has probably been around before, but I've had this weird little issue cropping up all day and I don't know how to fix it. I exported my saber model from nwmax as instructed in all the tutorials/explanation posts i could find. The hilt is positioned alright, but the blade seems to rotate 90 degrees towards the player and becomes displaced, as seen in the image:
What could cause this? Is there something I may have overlooked? Note that I've tried resetting XForm before AND after linking the new hilt to the dummy, but it produces the same effect.
