This is a guide how to rotate a model in the Modeller.

Suppose you have imported a 3D model which faces the wrong direction:

Rotating a model by a set number of degrees around a point

  1. 1 In the Modeller, switch to point mode by clicking point at the top left of the screen or by pressing 3.
  2. 2 Switch to a 2D view depending on which axis you want to rotate the model around. For example, to rotate the model around the X axis, switch to the right side 2D view by clicking the R button at the bottom right or by pressing R.
  3. 3 Select a point around which the rotation will be done by clicking it with LMB.

  4. 4 Select all points by pressing Ctrl + A. The selected pivot point will remain green and all other points will be red.

  5. 5 Click the rotate button in the left panel. A dialog will appear.
  6. 6 Enter the desired number of degrees to rotate anti-clockwise around the green point and click OK press ↵ Enter. In this example, the correct rotation is 90.

  7. 7 Move the model so it fits in between the wheels. One way to move the model is to drag one of the move buttons going from the green point.
