Rotation

Rotation is one of the opporations you may want to perform on your shape to orient it at the correct angle.

To perform a rotation, simply click that shape you wish to rotate. In the menu that appears on the right, click the ‘Operations’ tab. Enter the angle (in degrees) you wish to rotate your shape by. Note that a positive rotation is clockwise, and a negative rotation is counterclockwise. This is because the rotation is about the X axis which is into the page in direction.

 

Note that the L beam has been rotated by 30 degrees clockwise. The rotation is always about the centroid of the shape.
