View Full Version : Rotating Material in PW 3D

05-02-2011, 11:40 AM
Is there a way to rotate the material in the Z axis in PW 3D? I have a design imported from DrafeSight that is only 2" thick but the material block in PW3D is 3.6, because of the rotation in the z axis.

I can't figure out how to rotate the material in the Z block of the material so that it is centered- or pushed to the top or bottom. Any ideas?

Rotating increments less than 90 degrees in PW3D is not possible. You will have to do this in your CAD program and re-save the 3D file. PW3D reads the normals/orientation from your CAD.

Thanks Brady- as they say...back to the drawing board.

May be a nice feature for a future release?
