Under the Transform menu, you will find the standard commands … Move, Copy, Scale, Rotate.
- With these commands, select an object or a set of objects.
- Next select the Base pt for the transformation. This is the point you move from, or the rotate or scale origin.
- Next you are asked for the “to point”, you and enter precise coordinates like described here. OR you can enter a rotation angle to rotate the object relative to, or a scale factor for the Scale command.
Here you can enter:
- Absolute coordinate: 20,20,40
- Relative rectangular coordinate: @20,20
- Relative Polar: @20<45 (this is distance & the angle to move on the current clane.)
You can also use the gumball for a relative move, but you will be restricted to the directions of the gumball widget. It may take longer than using a relative polar coordinate.
This steps are the same you are Rhino for Mac or Rhino for Windows.
You will find these details in the Rhino Level 1 training guide.
Chapter 4 Page 49-55 & pages 106-112.
Osnaps are also important for precision.
There may be other ways, that are suggested from other user.
Let me know if this helps.
