How to turn a face in a solid?

I want to turn a face of my solid around an axis? Wich command I need to use? I know its somewhere but I can't remember what or where it was.

RE: How to turn a face in a solid?

Not sure what you mean by face of a solid.  Do you want to unstitch the face and rotate it, or rotate the solid about the face?

In KeyCreator you can unstitch using the Modify>Unstitch command with option to Unhook, Copy, or Delete the face.

To rotate use the Xform> Rotate command, either Move or Copy by designating one position or two position to establish an axis of rotation.

I found it! It's the command "Transform faces of a solid body" in "Modify". There you can turn faces around an axis or move them along a vector. Thanx
