How to rotate a local CS

How to rotate a local CS

How to rotate a local CS

Hello, i am new in the forum and this is my first post.
Also new ANSYS user.
Here is my question.

I am working in a simulation where i need to move the heat source around the workpiece. I have created the solid in the global coordinate system and i have created a local coordinate system to select the nodes in wich i will apply the heat.

Now i need to moove/rotate the local coordinate system around the workpiece so other nodes are selected. How can I do it? Is there any command that can rotate/move the coordinate system? something like "CSROTATE"
I have searched the forum for similar posts but i cant find a solution.

Thanks in advance.

RE: How to rotate a local CS

You can define local coordinate system using command "CS", "CSKP" or "CSWPLA", whichever is continent in your model.
