About Rotating Objects

You can rotate objects in your drawing around a specified base point.

To determine the angle of rotation, you can enter an angle value, drag using the
cursor, or specify a reference angle to align to an absolute angle.

Rotate an Object by a Specified Angle

Enter a rotation angle value from 0 to 360 degrees. You can also enter values in
radians, grads, or surveyor bearings. Entering a positive angle value rotates the
objects counterclockwise or clockwise, depending on the base angle direction setting
in the Drawing Units dialog box.

Rotate an Object by Dragging

Drag the object around the base point and specify a second point. Use Ortho mode,
polar tracking, or object snaps for greater precision.

For example, you can rotate the plan view of a house by selecting the objects (1),
specifying a base point (2), and specifying an angle of rotation by dragging to another
point (3).

Rotate an Object to an Absolute Angle

With the Reference option, you can rotate an object to align it to an absolute angle.

For example, to rotate the part in the illustration so the diagonal edge rotates to
90 degrees, you select the objects to be rotated (1, 2), specify the base point (3),
and enter the Reference option. For the reference angle, specify the two endpoints
of the diagonal line (4, 5). For the new angle, enter 90.

Rotate an Object in 3D

To rotate 3D objects, you can use either ROTATE or ROTATE3D.

  • With ROTATE, you can rotate objects around a specified base point. The axis of rotation
    passes through the base point and is parallel to the Z axis of the current UCS.
  • With ROTATE3D, you can specify the axis of rotation using either two points; an object;
    the X, Y, or Z axis; or the Z direction of the current view.
NOTE:The ROTATE3D command is not available in AutoCAD LT.

A three-dimensional object always rotates around an imaginary line called a rotation axis. If the axis passes through the body's center of mass, the body is said to rotate upon itself, or spin.object would rotate with respect to its own axis, am I right ????rotating, reflecting, or flipping one or more objects in Adobe Illustrator.… Objects can be scaled, rotated, and sheared directly by using the move tool.
