Rotation tips

Hi you all,

I would like to ask you to a tip about this kind of rotation.

My mind - for those who know Autocad - would use an “align” instrument, which establishes in which kind of new position the geometry should be (and if it is longer… on that direction, without deforming it).
In rhino I usually use 3d rotation, but this time I am not able to understand the perfect axis…
How would you solve it? [ps. re-do the geometry again is not the answer :smiley: I am going to do it anyway in the meanwhile]

Thank you very much in advance

Hi Virginia -

Without the 3dm file, it’s hard to be sure, but it looks like you should be able to use Rotate3D on this with the axis being the edge that is on the A=A horizon and then move that end face at B.

Or possibly, Rotate3d on the surface normal of the plane at A=A.


I assume there is no a dedicated command, right?
Should I solve everything with rotation?
(in this specific case I should rotate in the plan, then rotate 3d, but I wanted to know if there is a faster solution to avoid to identify axis)


Hi Virginia - it will be easier to help if you can provide an example file with the getometry you are asking about.


Maybe you are shooting for a 2 point orient ?—-Mark

Yeah, I would go for Orient or Orient3Pt in this case - with scale set to 1D is the lengths are not the same (and they need to be).

great!! That was the tool I was searching for! Thank you very much!
