View Full Version : I can't rotate 3d imports in version 5

03-18-2009, 01:17 AM
Am I missing something? I have imported 3d files I made in cut 3d and then rotated them. like making corners and such. but now I try it with 5 and I get the message only vectors can be rotated bitmaps have been deselected.

Hello Steve,

In version 5 you will see the message that you described.
We never really envisaged that the rotate tool would be used for this purpose.
You can use the "Mirror Tool" (Flip Horizontal, Flip Vertical) to orientate the toolpaths in order to make your corners.
It is worth remembering that it is the toolpaths that get
imported in from Cut3D / PartWorks 3D, not the 3D file.

I hope that this helps.
