  1. Hi all, I have to modify and rotate assemblies very very often on a daily bases. Copy one assembly to a new location, and I have to modify it and then change the angle (I make a model for pipelines and cable-lines . Often there is a similar part with different slope for next segment.) What I do: - Select assembly parts (in Advance Steel I have a custom command assigned) - input R for rotate - select the base point for rotation - enter R for reference - select the same base rotation point as before - select second point for reference - select the new point on target l
  2. Hello CADtutor, First time post, long time reader. Huge fan. I tried to find this problem on the forum before posting, but had no luck. I am trying to have a dynamic block that will show the profile of a steel plate, detailing the angle of a bevel. Including the plate thickness, the land, gap and the actual angle of the bevel. I've gotten most of it figured out, but having a grip to SET the angle at a specific number, while maintaining the drawing's integrity is proving difficult. I have attached the block I have created so far (minus the previous attempts to rotate the beveled angle
  3. I am attaching a rotate parameter and action to a dynamic block. I get the "Specify base point" bit okay but I can't figure out what "Specify radius of parameter" does. Do I have to include or exclude other parameters like Flip or Stretch? I get some weird results when I rotate an object with other parameters. Is it possible to place the Grip in a specific place? It always seems to like to sit on top of another parameter name. Thanks
  4. I've looked everywhere to find out if there is a setting I inadvertently changed when using Rotate. Whenever I want to rotate an object, and move my mouse up, down, right, left, it not rotating in 90 increments but at 49d26'7.3" I don't know how that happened but I cannot figure out how to reset it back to normal. Does anyone have a clue? I can restart in a new template, but I'e drawn so much that when I copy and paste, it brings that setting in. It's making me crazy! Thanks for any help you can give me.
  5. Hi there, I have multiple elevation labels that are all reading horizontally. I would love to be able to rotate them individually so that they are flush with my property lines or back of curbs, etc. I know I can change the rotation in the style but I'd hate to make a whole bunch of different styles. I don't really want to explode them, I want them to remain a elevation and upadte as soon as my surface changes. I've read some forumns on this which says you can't do it, but they were from 2005, 2006 time and I'm sure I've seen it done before. Is it possible? Or if anyone else have a
  6. Hopefully I can describe this clearly, here goes.. I have a face-based family that references an annotation family. I have already been able to shift create the annotation shift function, that allows the symbol to move independent of the 3D object (moving the annotation along a wall while leaving the 3D object in place). But now I need to add the ability to rotate that annotation as well (again, independent of the 3D object). This will be used for a camera device to simulate view direction of that camera. I have been able to figure out what is needed to rotate the annotation, but wh
  7. Hi All, I have a dwg that looks great in modelspace, however I created a couple paperspace layouts and then used AlignSpace to rotate to those views. The problem is that my point label style rotates the point labels based on the alignspace rotation. I looked into the point label settings and changed the orientation reference to the World Coord. Sys., but it does not help the points rotate correctly. (world reference is the goal) Any thoughts? Please see attached images.

    Text Won't Rotate

    This mtext won't rotate. When I use the rotate command, the text moves around a point, but stays right side up the whole time. I remember this happening with xrefs as well. Anyone know what's happening here?

    Rotated Image Disappears

    I've tried both draging an image into Autocad and importing it in as a block. When I try to rotates the image it either rotates around a point (but doesn't actually rotate itself) or rotates and disappears only leaving a white outline. How can I properly rotate an image?
  10. Basically I'm trying to rotate a slot-machine like spinner. I want to restrict the rotation where what is being rotated is the outer skin - the spinner itself shouldn't change position at all. I've tried various pivots but all of them move the actual circle. Here is a couple of angles of what I'm working with: http://i.imgur.com/0sa5j.jpg The only visible part will be in front of the teal plane. Is there a way I might rotate the spinner but constrict the rotation to the space occupied by the spinner? I hope that makes sense. Thanks for any input!!

    Won't Rotate

    I'm trying to rotate this TIN surface, but it won't rotate. I select it, do the ROTATE command, pick the rotation while seeing the how the surface will look, click, and nothing happens. An alignment won't rotate either. The polylines I just made will rotate though. Anyone know what might be going wrong? EDIT: The items that won't rotate are data references. I assume that's why they won't rotate. There must be something extra I need to do to rotate them?
  12. Greetings all, i work with AUtoCAD MEP and use "devices" regularly. We normally convert the consultants electrical blocks to devices and do what we do but on this project half of the the consultants blocks are mirrored. The problem occurs when the conversion to MEP device happens. The devices are created 180 degrees out of rotation from the original block. This means the roughly 1200 devices of 20 different types need to be manually rotated. Ugh! I saw this thread below which is the closest i have found to a solution. http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?54913-Rotate-multiple
  13. dear, all due to new geo-reference point introduced to project, we need to move all object in drawing identically over 200 files. is there any way to make it batch and automatize the process including insertion of new ucs cordinates? any opinion is well come. thank you in advance.

    inv 08 rotate sketch

    Hello I cannot rotate geo in a sketch to an exact dimension. I am only allowed to move it by hand or mouse. When I type in 36 deggrees it does nothing. What eactly is it that I need to do that I am not being told? I select rotate button while in a sketch I select the geo I tell it x 0 y 0 for center point ( since it will not allow me to pick the z axis) then it will only allow me to move the geo by mouse nothing more exact than that. Is this really how the software is suppose to work or am I missing an important step? Is there a reason why you cannot use the z axis for your
