Rotate window

Rotation control for elements of a thermal bridgeThe window Rotate allows rotations of one or more element(s) selected from element list. The window is opened from the context menu of element processing (submenu Rotate).

Rot. Z Selects the rotation in the Z plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  X und Y coordinate values
Rot. Y Selects the rotation in the Y plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  X und Z coordinate values
Rot. X Selects the rotation in the X plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  Y und Z coordinate values
X, Y, Z Coordinates of the rotation centre point
- 90° clockwise All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
+ 90° counter cw. All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
180° rotation All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
 Rotate Selection of the rotation function of this window

Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.
 

The rotation is applied equally to all elements currently selected in the element list. If there are no elements selected all Rotation buttons are set inactive.

Remark: Rotation in Y or X plane is available only in 3D projects.

Remark: Element rotation are done only in 90 degrees steps to keep the orthogonal structure of the input model.

Remark. To rotate elements of belonging together it is advised to assign them to a group. This allows for later selection from context menu of element processing by group name easily.

Remark. The newly introduced function Slope/Roundness of AnTherm Version 8 permits rotation by an arbitary angle between 0 and 90 degrees (not only integral multiples of 90 degrees). With this method, the element that is to be rotated is subdivided into several smaller elements. This means that in contrast to the rotation method described here, the function Slope/Roundness has an impact on the number of the elements of the model.
