# How to Rotate an object by degree...

## Recommended Posts

hi,

i havent grasp the method on how to Rotate an object by manually entering the Degree.

i know that Line is currently 67..Degree... by drwing a line that Perpen. to it and listing the property of it.

i want to rotate my Property line, that my left Lot line to be 90 degree.

my logic is....

the Red line is 67Degree....and if i want to it to be 90degree (12oclojck). i would rotate it -23 degree (counnter c/w)??

some how, i dont think CA uses this logic in rotating an object.

can someone shed a light on this....

thanks,

Draw a line at the angle you want

Draw a line at the same angle as the object

With the angle tool measure the angle between the two lines

Select the line that is at the same angle as the object and select the object

Open the angled measurement and enter "0"

This will align the object to the required line angle

Or use the transform- replicate tool to do it.

Buzzsaw,  You have it all figured out but you need to use CA logic.   +23o  is ccw.

Here's a quick video I made for Johnny a while back. You might find a useful tidbit in there. Also, in addition to the tools mentioned above and the tools in the video, bear in mind that Make Parallel/Perpendicular and Point To Point Move are your friend when it comes to rotating things. Have a good day everyone.

P.S. Nice illustration Chop!
