How to fine-tune the rotation of the model

To rotate the model in any direction, right-click somewhere in the model. Then move the mouse left or right to rotate the model horizontally, or move the mouse up or down to rotate the model vertically.


However, it is difficult to fine-tune the rotation with this mouse method.


Is there a way to fine-tune the rotation of the model using the keyboard?

Is there a way to fine-tune the rotation of the model using a script

anonymous user What do you mean by "fine-tune"? Do you want to rotate the view to a specific angle like 90 degrees?

I want to rotate in 1 degree increments.

I find a 3D mouse is the best option.

You can use a script like this to set the view's rotation to any specific values you want:

treenode view = activedocumentnode();
viewpointrx(view).value = -90;
viewpointry(view).value = 0;
viewpointrz(view).value = 90;

If you don't want to rely on the 3D view being the currently active view you would use code like this to get a reference to the first open 3D view:

treenode view = views().find("active>Documents/Perspective/1+/~");

Or you can right click in the view and set it as sv() and use that as a reference in your script.
