Rotate dialog

Used to rotate the selected portions of the structure about the specified axis through a specified distance. The selected portions may be copied or moved.

Opens when the Rotate tool is selected in the Structure group on the Geometry ribbon tab.

Note: Unlike the Repeat > Circular tool, the Rotate tool allows you to generate copies about any arbitrary axis instead of only one parallel to the global axes.
Angle Type the angle of sweep.
Axis Passes Through Define the axis of rotation by either a pair of existing nodes or two arbitrary points.
Generate Mode The Copy option generates new structural elements. The Move option changes the coordinates of the selected structural elements.
Link Bays (Available only for Copy option) This option connects the copy with the original geometry by creating new linking members between them.
