Rotating from a selected plane

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Currently when I choose rotate, I can only rotate from a chosen axis. This is problematic when trying to rotate an object not in-line with an axis. It would be super useful if I could rotate any object using a slected plane as origin for the rotation...Any ideas?

Currently, you need to create an arbitrary plane that matches the perpendicularity to the axis you want to rotate on.

which means, you need to create some "tool" objects to get you there.  then from there you can use the tool to create the arbitrary plane.


I have been considering making a script that will allow rotating about an arbitrary axis, like the revolve tool does.   But my linear algebra skills have withered many years ago.

When scripting is available again, I will look into it (after some priorities)
