I'm not an Inventor user, so please pardon the ignorance. We supply 3D models (surface models only) of our product for customers to use. A particular customer is using Inventor and says he can't manipulate the surface model (actually a collection of surfaces) to show a crank arm in a different rotated position than the one supplied. That seems baffling to me. He may not know how to use Inventor, or Inventor really can't rotate a collection of surface bodies. Can Inventor rotate a collection of surface bodies about an axis, or reference point/edge?
