    Default How to rotate view from SW Isometric view

    I have pipes drawn in 3d and they'll be exported to a .png for graphics. Customer likes the SW isometric view, but wants me to rotate the view 32 deg around the z axis from where they are now (in SW view). How do I do that?

    TIA!

    Thanks, that helps.....sort of.

    If my xy plane shows 35.3 and my "from" is 225 - what do I need to do to rotate it 32 deg about the z axis from where it is now?

    Enter either 193 or 257 in the "from x axis" box and click OK.


    Bear in mind that there are 2 radio buttons at the top of the box - "absolute to WCS" and "relative to UCS". The choice may may a difference depending on the true orientation of the parts and your current co-ordinate system.
