Insert and rotate a component

Postby sting2318 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 10:45 pm

Is there a way to rotate a component while it is being inserted into a model. I find that now I insert a component and then rotate it using the rotate tool.
maybe avalibale in an extension tool?!

If you move Move tool cursor over the rotation handles, you can rotate it about its center without switching tools. If you always seem to be rotating the component, maybe you need to change its axis orientation so it comes in already rotated or you need to give it gluing properties so it rotates to align with the face if you are putting it on a face.
