Transform The Part

3DPrint allows you to transform an individual part, or a group of parts. When transformed individually, the center of transformation is located in the middle of the part. When a group of parts is transformed, the center of transformation is located in the middle of the group. Following is an illustration to help clarify the differences between individual and group transformations.

  • Here, two parts are shown in the 3D View.

  • When both parts are selected and Transform > Rotate is chosen, the parts will rotate and reorient relative to their individual centers.
