Hello Kevin and Michael, the best way to move an object is to use the Move Node in the Operations category. for the offset input, you can use a "point2" node, "point3" node, "vector2" node or "vector3" node. all of these are in the Input category. You can also use "Point3D" or "Point2D" from the Points category. For each of these nodes, you can set the x- y- and z- values the DISTANCE you want to move the object in each of the three directions. It works just like the move command in VW.
The Rotate node works in a similar way. You can use any of the 3D point or vector nodes as your input, and if you want to rotate an object within the xy plane (as you would a 2D object in plan view) you make the z value of your 3D point node the angle that you want to rotate the object by. Each x- y- and z-value represents the axis around which you will rotate the object.
I hope that answers your questions!
