How to rotate an object?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to HD but this should be something simple and easy to do but I can't figure it out.

 

Is there a way to rotate an object on the Y axis? this could be furniture or in my case is large floor standing speakers, I want to rotate them about 15 degrees on the Y AXIS but all I get to do is rotate them on the X axis creating a weird floating speaker view. I know how to rotate the camera views and get different perspectives but this is not doing the trick

 

thanks in advance,

Luis

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

You (maybe) can select items in elevation and rotate with the rotate handle.

 

This is Pro.

Thanks @solver but your picture shows exactly what I'm experiencing: I can rotate objects on the X AXIS which makes that toilet look tilted, same thing with my speaker... I just want to angle it (or swivel it) so the two speakers are facing the same focal point. I'll keep trying, it might work from a different camera view. You'd think this should be a simple thing to do but I guess it's not.

You can do the same in plan view.

 

Maybe it's the Z axis you want to rotate about.
