Adding interactivity: Rotation

We can also use interactivity to rotate things such as the doors of this refrigerator. We already have this set up, so that we can interact with the drawers. But right now, the upper and lower doors of this refrigerator don't work. So let's go ahead and make them work. I am going to go ahead and select the Refrigerator, go into Dynamic Components > Component Attributes. Let's go ahead and work on this lower door, the bigger one, and we are going to go ahead and add an attribute.

Well what attribute do we want to add? Well, we want it to rotate around the vertical axis, which is our Y or our blue axis. So let's go ahead and add attribute, RotZ. We can see here that the default value is 90. So we can rotate it between, say for example, 90 and 0. But as you can see it's rotating the wrong way. It's rotating around the wrong axis. So let's go ahead and put that back to 90 and we need to change the axis. Now in order to do this, we have to find the component, so I am...
