Submitted by Akash Periyasamy, on February 10, 2022

Rotate command is used to rotate an object through a specified angle so that the object is placed at the right position. Sometimes, the user can create the object with respect to the origin and he can position it at the required angle with the aid of this particular command. The object will be rotated along the base point specified by the user.

The two standard methods of enabling the rotate command are explained below:

  1. First Method:
    In this method, the command is enabled by clicking on the icon shown below which is present in the ribbon panel.
    Rotate Command (Step 1)
  2. Second Method:
    It is an alternative method in which the command is enabled by typing RO in command line.

The various methodologies that are used to rotate the object in the workspace are explained below:

(i) By Dragging the cursor

In this method, the object is rotated randomly by moving the cursor in the workspace.

  • Open a new file in the AutoCAD 2022 software.
    Rotate Command (Step 2)
  • Draw a rectangle of random dimension at any point within the workspace.
    Rotate Command (Step 3)
  • Enable the rotate command by anyone of the method explained above.
    Rotate Command (Step 4)
  • Click on the object that is to be rotated. In our case, it is the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 5)
  • Specify the basepoint of the rectangle i.e., the corner of the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 6)
  • Now, as you move the cursor you can find that the rectangle gets rotated along the basepoint.
    Rotate Command (Step 7)
  • At any random position, place the rectangle. Thus, the rectangle is rotated within the workspace.
    Rotate Command (Step 8)

(ii) By Specifying the angle

In this method, the object is rotated through an angle by specifying the angle in the command line.

  • Open a new file in the AutoCAD 2022 software.
    Rotate Command (Step 9)
  • Draw a rectangle of random dimension at any point within the workspace.
    Rotate Command (Step 10)
  • Enable the rotate command by anyone of the method explained above.
    Rotate Command (Step 11)
  • Click on the object that is to be rotated. In our case, it is the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 12)
  • Specify the basepoint of the rectangle i.e., the corner of the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 13)
  • Now, specify the angle of rotation i.e., 135 degrees.
    Rotate Command (Step 14)
  • Thus, the rectangle is rotated within the workspace.
    Rotate Command (Step 15)

(iii) By using Copy

In this method, the object is copied as well as rotated in the workspace.

  • Open a new file in the AutoCAD 2022 software.
    Rotate Command (Step 16)
  • Draw a rectangle of random dimension at any point within the workspace.
    Rotate Command (Step 17)
  • Enable the rotate command by anyone of the method explained above.
    Rotate Command (Step 18)
  • Click on the object that is to be rotated. In our case, it is the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 19)
  • Specify the basepoint of the rectangle i.e., the corner of the rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 20)
  • Enter C in the command line to enable the copy command.
    Rotate Command (Step 21)
  • Now, specify the angle of rotation i.e., 135 degrees.
    Rotate Command (Step 22)
  • Thus, a rectangle is rotated through the required angle without disturbing the original rectangle.
    Rotate Command (Step 23)
