Rotate between axis


#1

Can someone explain to me how to rotate on other than the X,Y or Z axis? I’ve tried everything……rotate rotate 3D and gum ball and I’m just not getting it. It seems like I can rotate orthogonally on any of the axis but not something in-between. I’d attach an image if I could figure out how!

Hi Paul,

turn Ortho off, then use Rotate3D to do this. Rhino should prompt you to pick two points (the axis start and end points), then enter the rotation angle or use your mouse to rotate around the axis specified. Does this help ?

FINALLY! Actually I was using the wrong axis. That can be tricky sometimes! Thanks for you help.
