can't translate 3D model to 0,0,0

Dear Math Forum,

I have a problem with translating some 3D models to 0,0,0. I have been using the following code:

ma = Mean@a; ac = # + ({0, 0, 0} - ma) & /@ a;

where "a" is a 3D model made up of many 3D coordinates. However, this code does not work - in that the new centroid (mean) of the model is not at 0,0,0. can anyone suggest an alternative method?

best wishes,
