Rotating an architectural block


Recommended Posts

I need to rotate an architectural block but I need to do it on the Z axis. The easiest way I would think to do this is in a cross section view but the rotation handle only appears for X and Y rotations. For clarification, I'm designing a custom dog ramp. I "built" the entire ramp portion flat to the "ground" just as I would in real life. Now i'd like to tilt the entire block that makes up the ramp to find the right slope. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks!

When posing questions here you need to add what software and its version you are using. Different titles and versions have different capabilities. Generally speaking I do not believe what you wish to happen can be done in any Home Designer software title or version but if I knew what/which you do have I can be more certain. Once I know your software title and version, I may be able to do was you wish using Chief Premier and then send it back to you, if you will post a copy of your .plan file, let me know, please.

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


You can help everyone by adding that 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.






Many questions have been asked and answered. The Home Designer website is a good place to start your search.


Here is a video about searching the forum:

Using what tools -- soffit, slab etc?


For what purpose? That is, why are you using Home Designer to design this and what will you do with it once complete?
