Rotate geometry in sketch mode using reference line

Rotate geometry in sketch mode using reference line

(OP)
Hi,

In Autocad there is a command to rotate a geometry in sketch mode using a reference line instead of an angle. I can't seem to find this command in Inventor 2013. Does somebody know where to find it or have another simple way of doing it?

RE: Rotate geometry in sketch mode using reference line

First rule.. Inventor is not Autocad.. :)
What about a parallel or maybe collinear constraint?


RE: Rotate geometry in sketch mode using reference line

Yeah, I know.. It's most unfortunate :)

This requires that all the lines dimensions/constraints is specified, if you don't want to mess up the geometry.
But there isn't any way of rotating it without having to specify the dimensions first?
(Let's say in a case when I really want to dimension the geometry afterwards)

Thanks!

Create a Sketch block.
Attach your *.ipt file here.

Exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks a lot!
