Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotate, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- The Rotate command allows you to rotate any object…to any degree around a set base point.…We'll start with the Rotate command found here.…I'm gonna select my object and press Return,…and I'm asked for my base point.…This is the pivot point around which…I will rotate my object.…For now, just so we can see…what the command will do, I'm just gonna…click here and start to drag my cursor.…We can see, as we drag around,…we can rotate our object to any degree.…
And, reading the command line,…I can also specify a value if I like.…I'm just gonna click here for now,…and there's my rotated object.…Now that we've seen the mechanics of the command,…let's look at some of the options.…I need to rotate this square back…to a normal angle, let's say 45 degrees.…If I select the object and type in RO and press Return,…I'll select my same point as my base point,…and I'm given my rotation line.…But notice, it doesn't really have any relationship…to the square, except for the fact…that it was the zero-zero angle found here.…
I need to get this line to be at 45 degrees.…
