Center of Rotation

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 390 ✭✭✭
In the image, I've selected a point, but when I try to rotate, just a small movement with the mouse and I'm off to disneyland. That's because I've zoomed in much. 

Can't I change the center of rotation, so that I rotate where I appear to be? 

I want to be inside the model, not a light year from the model with a telescope;).

    move the cursor to the point before rotating.  The center of rotation is base on where the cursor is when you rotate.  It just take some practice.

    Yeah, same need for this. Prefer Fusion 360's rotation. Would be perfect if there is an option to set this. ^-^
