Tip:
  • To rotate selections properly, the primary axis on the steering wheel must be aligned with the rotation axis you want. You can position the steering wheel using linear edges, cylindrical faces, sketch elements, and so forth.
  • You can also use the Keypoints option on the Move command bar to specify a keypoint type, then select a keypoint on the model to define the extent of the move or rotate operation.
  • You can use the Connected Faces options on the Move command bar to control how the adjacent faces react to the move or rotate operation.
  • You can use the Live Rules options to control how the model reacts to the move or rotate operation.
