I'm trying to figure the best way to create icon (for UI) from my 3d model (object) that player can use in the game. Maybe this is a silly question, but: how do you create icon ? Do you create a new scene, place object and use a "shift-print" to take screenshots ?

Others way ?

This should probably be a comment, but I want to post a screen shot. I have used the model preview screen to do screen grab in the past. You can move the model around in all 3 axis with your mouse.
