    A trick I learned from @southerngfx is the following:
    1. Place the mirror plane where you want the new center to be
    2. Turn mirror plane off
    3. Delete half your sculpt according to where the mirror plane is
    4. Duplicate
    5. Flip, which flips your sculpt across the mirror plane
    6. Symmetry
    7. Turn mirror plane back on and save!

    Zero the X axis on the Lathe and then center sculpt - the other option is good as well..

    This relies on you perfectly placing the mirror plane in the center of your sculpture, and it ruins the model if you're trying to center an organic object that isn't symmetrical, such as a tree.

    This relies on you having the lathe centered from the beginning, the center sculpt option on the lathe tool doesn't move an object in a layer to the center of anything.

    I made a similar post about not being able to figure out how to snap an object on a layer to the origin because I can't find an answer that actually works anywhere....
