How to orient a flat shape parallel to main axis?

Postby miker-gr » Tue Nov 27, 2018 9:46 am

Hello! I have a flat shape that i create it by unfolding a 3d shape. How can i rotate the final flat shape and make it parallel to the one of the three main planes?
Is there a quick way to do it or i have to use the rotate tool as many times as necessary?
Thank you!

It should only need 2 rotations, three at the most.

Yes that is true. The problem is the shape! It's usually very strange and i can't be sure it's oriented correctly
Here is a picture!

You can make it easier to see how to rotate a shape by drawing a flat plane to work on, make it a group so you don't stick to it.
