Transform Raster

Used to move, scale, or rotate a raster.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Attach > Raster
  • Toolbox: Raster Control

When working with 3D raster images, it is possible to apply a modification in all of the views.

The transform operation on a raster image is always done parallel to the X-Y plane.

Note: This tool is no longer blocked when more than one raster is selected.


Initiates a move operation.

If necessary, you can move, interactively, both the image and the image anchor point.


Initiates a scale operation.

Initiates a rotate operation.
Anchor Point

Sets the anchor point for interactive scaling and rotation. Transformation is performed relative to this point.
  • Identification point — when you select the image with a data point.
  • Image origin — when you select the image from the list in the Raster Manager dialog.
