In 3ds max, I need to reset the model matrix without changing the position of all vertices. Does anyone know how to do this?

EDIT: I didn't know that the model matrix was called a "pivot".

Can you clarify what you mean by "model matrix"? – ckpepper02 Dec 20 '13 at 16:10

Go to the hierarchy tab, click on "Affect Pivot Only" and move the pivot to 0,0,0 .
