This option allows a dynamic rotation about the screen axes. Screen axes are defined as:

  • X-axis: The horizontal axis.
  • Y-axis: The vertical axis.
  • Z-axis: The axis at a right angle to the screen.

When entering this command, Z-axis is set by default and moving the mouse to the left or to the right will rotate the geometry around this axis. Clicking the left mouse button changes the axis. To cancel this function, use escape (see Escape).

Can be changed the axis about which the image in rotated by entering the letters x, y or z in the command line.

To move the geometry by a fixed angle, enter the number of degrees, positive or negative, in the command line.
