CFrame.Angles is broken

Current code:

local players: Players = game:GetService("Players")

local function onPlayerAdded(player: Player)
	local function onCharacterAdded(character: Model)
		local torso: BasePart = character:WaitForChild("Torso") :: BasePart
		local sledgehammer: Model = script.Sledgehammer:Clone()
		local sledgehammerPrimaryPart: BasePart = sledgehammer.PrimaryPart :: BasePart

		local weldConstraint: WeldConstraint ="WeldConstraint")
		weldConstraint.Part0 = torso
		weldConstraint.Part1 = sledgehammerPrimaryPart
		weldConstraint.Parent = torso
		sledgehammer:PivotTo(torso.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(45), math.rad(90), math.rad(90)))
		sledgehammer.Parent = character


What should happen?
Position the Sledgehammer at the torso like this:

The orientation of this sledgehammer is 45, 90, 90

What really happens:

The orientation of this sledgehammer is -0.001, 89.998, 134.996

Any idea why Roblox is ignoring my CFrame.Angles parameters? Please help!

Does it look different without using CFrame.Angles?

What happens if you change CFrame.Angles to CFrame.fromEulerAnglesYXZ? I’m not sure if it’s enough to fix it but more of a curiosity.

Anyways, when using CFrame.Angles, the rotations are applied in reverse. So it first rotates Z by 90, then Y by 90, then X by 45. If you need to, you could break it up by using three separate CFrame.Angles calls to force X to be applied first.


CFrame.fromEulerAnglesYXZ seems to work, thank you!

Same result as for CFrame.Angles.
