And it looks kind of like a protractor. Now the neat thing about this, is that it will snap to faces.

So when I'm on a horizontal face, it will snap to the blue axis. This will snap to the red axis. This will snap to green. Now what we're doing is we're rotating around this axis, so imagine that axis going through the protractor. So if I wanted to rotate this I can basically select where I want to rotate it. So if I want to rotate from the middle, I go into the middle of that face, left click, and what we do is, we drag out the first angle here. So I'm just going to go ahead and left click again, and then we can drag this to rotate.
