In this video, learn how Dynamo geometry is rotated around a vector object and mirrored across a plane.
- [Male Narrator] In this video, we'll take a look…at how to perform two common commands…when you're working with geometry: rotate and mirror.…Let's head back over to the geometry modifiers…geometry section of the node library,…where we'll drop in a rotate node.…Let's use the one that takes in origin, axis,…and degrees as inputs.…For the geometry input, let's plug in the…geometry that we translated into space in our last video.…The remaining three inputs are the same as the ones…we used in another video to draw an arc.…
The origin is going to be the center point of the rotation,…or the point that we'll rotate our geometry around.…Once again use Dynamo's origin node for this one,…which means we're going to rotate both our square…and our triangle around the Dynamo origin.…Next we're being asked for an axis, which, if we hover…over the input, is a vector data type.…As we saw in the translate example, we can construct…our own vector by specifying x, y, and z components.…
But Dynamo also includes in the node library a few shortcuts…
