2D rotation

CNC code 2D rotation

Use this option to rotate selected path in any of three basic planes.
Select part of code you want to rotate and start this dialog.
You can set:

  • Rotation plane (XY, ZX ,or YZ)
  • Center point of rotation
  • Angle of rotation (positive for CCW direction, negative for CW direction)
  • You can leave original code and generate several copies of rotated path. In that case you can define transition moves also.

Check selected options in the preview area on the right.
Click OK to change selected code.

Note: CNC code is formatted according to currently selected machine settings. Do not select CNC code with various G and M preparatory commands other than G0, G1, G2, G3, G90 ,G91, S, F, M3, M4 because these commands will not be (re)generated in new code.
