How can I rotate a symbol so that it displays differently?
*The tools displayed are from the various Tools and Shop bonus catalogs located in the 3D Library.
A symbol's orientation, origin, and other characteristics can be adjusted in its Specification dialog.
In this article, we will change the rotation of a hand tool symbol that ordinarily sits on a table or countertop, so that it stands upright and can be displayed on a vertical pegboard. To do this, we will open its Specification dialog, access the 3D panel, input an appropriate value in the Angle field, then use the Rotate button(s) until the symbol is oriented how we want it.
Now that we have adjusted the orientation of our 3D symbol, we are ready to adjust the display of this object in 2D as well.
In the Symbol Specification dialog, you can also choose how this object is placed in the plan on the "Options" panel, its Materials on the "Materials" panel, and it's Sizing on the "Sizing" panel.
