Location: Modify>Solid Face>Transform
Use this local edit function to transform faces of a solid through rotation or displacement. The faces do not need to be planar. The Revolve a Face of a Solid function is a more powerful function for rotating planar faces. The Extrude a Face of a Solid function is another method of displacing only faces.
NOTE: The faces do not need to be planar for rotation or displacement.
Using the Function:
Follow the steps below to use the Face>XForm Faces function. The number of steps will vary depending upon the method you select.
When Transform Faces is selected, a dialog appears. You can disable the dialog and work interactively using the incremental options by selecting the Preview and Modify Faces Interactively setting. If you prefer to work through the dialog, leave the setting unchecked. The available settings are discussed below:
Specify transform method by selecting one of the available options: Delta XYZ, Old-New or Rotate by Angle.
Preview and Modify Faces Interactively
When checked, the original and modified solids will be displayed in shaded mode, and one of the two is drawn transparent. The dialog will exit when you select OK, and you will be able to work interactively using the incremental menu.
