To Rotate a Model Around a Pivot Point (Orbit Tool)
However, when it comes to really specific tasks, such as rotating MEP families in free space or around another family, Revit will propose quite tricky solutions. If you have ever attempted to rotate objects in Revit, you know what I am describing.Revit MEP - Rotating family - Option 1
Multiple rotation possibilities at your disposal Speed and accuracy can be decisive factors when it comes to the overall quality of an MEP project. Delivering in time is essential, that is why MEP engineers need to benefit from the help of specialized tools to aid them in their work. In this case, we are talking about a Revit plugin that enables the modeler to rotate families in free space around any axis X, Y, Zor around another 3D object with any amount of degrees.
Rotating single or multiple elements like fittings, pipes and ducts connected to a system is possible by specifying the desired direction and angle. You can rotate single Revit families, multiple elements connected to each other, assemblies or groups around X, Y, and Z axis in any view, including 3D views. View here the Revit plugin that will allow you to do all of this.With the Orbit cursor, the model displayed, drag to rotate around a pivot point while the view remains fixed.
The pivot point is the base point used when you rotate the model with the Orbit tool. You can specify the pivot point in the following ways:. The cursor changes to the Orbit cursor.
You can control how the model orbits around the pivot point by choosing to maintain the Up direction of the model. When the Up direction is maintained, orbiting is constrained along the XYaxis and in the Z direction. If you drag horizontally, the camera moves parallel to the XY plane. If you drag vertically, the camera moves along the Z axis.
If the Up direction is not maintained, you can roll the model using the roll ring around the pivot point. Orbiting the model is constrained along the XY plane and Z directions. Use the Orbit tool to change the orientation of a model.
You can also access the Orbit tool from other wheels by pressing the Shift key while holding down the middle mouse button. Specify the Pivot Point The pivot point is the base point used when you rotate the model with the Orbit tool.
You can specify the pivot point in the following ways: Default pivot point. When you first open a model, the target point of the current view is used as the pivot point for orbiting the model.
Select objects. You can select objects before you use the Orbit tool. The pivot point is calculated based on the center of the extents of the selected objects. Center tool. You can use the Center tool to specify a pivot point for orbiting. Press and hold down the Ctrl key before clicking the Orbit wedge or while the Orbit tool is active. This option is available only when you use the big and mini Full Navigation wheels or the mini View Object wheel.
Note: While the Orbit tool is active, you can be press and hold the Ctrl key at any time to move the pivot point.
Click and hold down the Orbit wedge. Drag to rotate the model. Note: If you use one of the Full Navigation or View Object wheels, use the Center tool to recenter the model in the current view. Orbit an Object Press Esc to make sure that no tools are active and to clear any previously selected objects.
Select the objects in the model for which you want to define the pivot point.
Display one of the View Object or Full Navigation wheels. Release the button on your pointing device to return to the wheel. Maintain the Up Direction You can control how the model orbits around the pivot point by choosing to maintain the Up direction of the model.
Display the mini View Object wheel or one of the Full Navigation wheels. Right-click the wheel, and click Options. Click OK. Click and hold the Orbit wedge. Press and hold the Shift key to display the roll ring. Drag to roll the model.

In 3D views, the axis is perpendicular to the work plane of the view. Not all elements can rotate around any axis.
For example, walls do not rotate in elevation views. Windows cannot rotate without their walls. To rotate elements. A center of rotation control displays at the center of the selected element. The control snaps to points and lines of interest, such as walls and the intersections of walls and lines. You can also move it onto open space. A line displays to indicate the first ray. If the cursor snaps while specifying the first ray, the snap line will rotate with the preview box and snap to angles on the screen while placing the second ray.
Another line displays to indicate the ray. A temporary angular dimension displays as you rotate, and a preview image shows the selection rotating. The selection rotates between the start and end rays. Revit returns to the Modify tool with the rotated element still selected. Revit Structure. Use the Rotate tool to rotate elements around an axis. Note: To select a work plane grid for rotation, zoom out to see the full extents of the work plane, and click the edge of the grid.
Note: If you are in the Rotate command, a shortcut key R3 activates the Place option. If you are not in the Rotate command, but have an element selected, using the R3 shortcut starts the Rotate command and activates the Place option.
To customize the R3 shortcut, modify the Define a new center of rotation command in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog. Note: Clicking Center of rotation: Default on the Options Bar resets the center of rotation to the default position. Tip: You can also rotate an element using listening dimensions. After you click to specify the start ray of rotation, the angular dimension displays in bold. Enter a value using the keyboard.

Without a doubt, we will be in touch with Nordic Visitor again. We have nothing but fond memories of our trip. Overall, the trip was just amazing. Everything was very well organised. Nothing was too much trouble for Helga. She arranged birthday surprise for Martin upon arrival. She booked additional food tour for us too. We had a fantastic time and Nordic Visitor (and Helga) helped make it so. Thank you for your wonderful services. It made our honeymoon stay very enjoyable.
We hope to book again soon. Seldom do you find something where you feel that you received more value for your hard earned money than what you spent. Nordic Visitor delivered a near perfect experience at what we consider to be a most reasonable cost.
Extensive travel plans including a larger, weather proof map of Scotland, were waiting for us in our hotel along with a personal note from Maria along with her phone number. Communications was excellent throughout our experience. Maria was extremely patient and provided us some very specific options. We own sheep dogs and wanted to see a sheep dog demonstration.
Within 20 minutes, we had the information and directions to a working sheep farm. I was very pleased with the entire experience put together by Nordic Visitor. All communications were prompt, the information in the packages was very detailed, the tour, accommodations, transfers, and recommended sites and restaurants were all excellent. We had no concerns during the entire trip and all the transfer shuttles arrived on time. We couldn't have asked more a better experience.
The information provided was most helpful and our vacation was the best one we've ever had. I know your company only works in the nordic countries, but we hope you know of similar companies in other areas of Europe you could recommend to us.
We loved the flexibility allowed us while you arranged the lodging and transportation. It was truly our best vacation EVER. I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to several friends. Everything worked perfectly, from trains to boats to accommodations. It was a perfect way to travel and see the country, and Bjarni was prompt and helpful throughout all communications. This was a wonderful experience and we have only only good things to say about our tour.
