Part rotation

Use the Rotation setting in the part properties to view and change the rotation of a part around its axis on the work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.


You can also define the angle of rotation. Tekla Structures measures positive values clockwise around the local x axis.

Alternatively, you can use the contextual toolbar or keyboard shortcuts to modify the part's position.





The work plane is parallel to the front plane of the part.


The work plane is parallel to the top plane of the part.


The work plane is parallel to the back plane of the part.


The work plane is parallel to the bottom plane of the part.
