Rotating curved truss

Recommended Posts

Must me missing something, how do you rotate a curved truss in the vertical plane, ie to create a curved proscenium arch?

As soon as it is ungrouped and then grouped it can be rotated, but loses all the truss parametrics.

Parametric Objects can only be rotated in the 2dTop Plan & 3dTop 'Z' plane.

Ungrouping breaks all the interactive parametric linkages. Only , ungroup then group once you are satisfied with the completed truss object. Then use the Modify>3d Rotate to set the thing in space.

The curved truss has a checkbox "Draw 3D only" If you select this option the truss will be drawn as a 3D only object and you will be able to rotate using the standard 3D rotation tools.

Kevin,

Thanks for that, I had tried that check box, but I did not look for the right changes.

That would be useful to have for all Hybrid objects, especially 2d/3d symbols
