How to reset the 3D cursor on Blender 3D

Blender 3D is the best open-source, free-to-use design tool in the market. It features all the necessary features that designers require to go through the entire design process. This includes 3D modeling, sculpting, animation, rigging, motion capture, and rendering.

Along with these features, Blender 3D also supports APIs, which means developers can also modify the tool and add in new features and functionalities.

Every design tool has its own unique interface and when it comes to Blender 3D, the most underrated and also the most useful feature is the 3D cursor. The 3D cursor determines where new elements are added in the design file and this is extremely useful when you are working on a large file or a large environment concept.

Sometimes, when we are using the 3D cursor, we may tend to misplace the 3D cursor, and it’s better in such cases that you reset the 3D cursor and then decide the next course of action.
