Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating items, part of Navisworks 2017 Essential Training.
…Sometimes we just don't really care if an item is in the…same orientation as the software that produced them such as Revit or Autocad.…If we have to rotate something in…place with Navisworks, you can certainly do that.…By selecting an object and picking the rotate button on the…Item tools tab you can easily rotate an item where it sits.…This video will show you how to do just that.…You'll also see how to set the center point of rotation using the gizmo.…Let's open up NavisworksEssential.nwd.…I'm…going to scroll down on this array here, and I'm going to rotate this cage.…
I'm going to select the cage by right-clicking on it.…Now I'm going to select Equipment Support.…From my Item tools tab, I'm going to click my Rotate button.…The Gizmo will automatically find the center line.…If I select this plain right here, I can rotate it about that center line.…If I slap this Gizmo here, I can rotate it in this direction.…This Gizmo doesn't do a lot.…What I can do, however, is grab this Gizmo and move it all the way out to here.…
