Flip object upside down

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to flip a cylindrical object upside down in order to create a set of mid century modern furniture feet (the ones you often see at the bottom of 1950 tables).  I can rotate it and flip it sideways, but I need to flip it upside down and can't figure out how to do that.

Have you checked the catalogs -- manufacturer and bonus for feet?

 

Have you tried selecting it in an elevation view and rotating it?

I tried elevation view, but could not see any way to rotate it.  I did try catalogs but couldn't find the feet I wanted.  I ended up finding a vase that was really close in shape.  I reduced it down in size and gave it a "wood" material.  It's working for now.  :-)

 

Thanks for the tips!

Don't know which object you were trying to rotate so I picked one of the shapes and in elevation you get a rotate handle.

I tested in Pro 2019 and was able to rotate.

 

Tried in Pro 2016 -- no rotate handle.

 

Looks like it's a new feature.

Thanks so much for trying!  I have 2018, so they must have just added this feature.  Bummer.  :-(  Fortunately, the flower pot did the trick.  

 

Thanks again!
