  • Figure 1 - Rotate Interface

Purpose: This interface is used to rotate selected nodes. The rotation direction and angle can be specified using various methods for maximum flexibility to suit different user needs. Optionally the rotations can be performed on multiple copies of the selected elements. The Tran option is only available when the Copy Element option is activated. This option automatically deselects the original nodes and selects the copied nodes (ready to perform the next operation with the copied set).

Controls:

  • Rot. Axis: Select axis/plane of rotation
  • Rot. Angle: Enter angle of rotation in degrees

  • cbc Pick node as origin - Pick a node as the origin of rotation

  • Node ID: Enter node ID as the origin of rotation (Hit enter to accept)
  • XYZ: Enter x, y, z coordinates as the origin of rotation

  • rbs Global - Rotation will be in global direction
  • rb Local - Rotation will be in local system

  • CID: Enter coordinate system ID, 0=global
