Note: The information below applies to the move function. Axial Trans/Rotate Copy is the same, except it copies the selected geometry, instead of moving it.

This function moves and rotates entities such that a specified axis is parallel to a target axis.

Using the Function

See the geometry figure below.

  1. Select entities to be moved.

  2. Specify origin of one of the entities you move. The coordinate axes are calculated from the specified point and displayed. (The coordinate axes are displayed in red, light blue or yellow.)

  3. When one of the coordinate axes is selected, a virtual axis is displayed.

  4. Specify a target axis. The entities are rotated making its axis parallel to the target axis, around the origin.

  5. Select a position for the Entity Mate, or Skip or Accept to not create an associative Entity Mate


When the arrangement is confirmed, the Command Change dialog appears, for desired selections.
