# Rotate

A rotate transform.

## Example

application = cf.Application.GetInstance()
project = application:NewProject()

-- Create a flare to rotate

flare = project.Contents.Geometry:AddFlare(cf.Point(0, 0, 0), 1, 1, 1, 0.5, 0.5)

-- Set up the origin and axis of rotation

rotationOrigin = cf.Point(3, 1, 1)
rotationAxis = cf.Point(1, 2, 0)

-- Rotate the flare by 25 degrees

-- Modify the rotation angle

rotate.Angle = 65

## Inheritance

The Rotate object is derived from the Transform object.

## Usage locations

The Rotate object can be accessed from the following locations:

## Property List

Angle
The rotation angle (degrees). (Read/Write AngularDimension)
Axis
The axis of rotation. (Read/Write LocalCoordinate)
Label
LocalWorkplane
Origin
The coordinates of the origin of the rotation. (Read/Write LocalCoordinate)
Type
The object type string. (Read only string)

## Collection List

Transforms
The collection of transforms on the operator. (TransformCollection of Transform.)

## Method List

CopyAndMirror (properties table)
Apply a copy and mirror using a table defining the properties. (Returns a Object object.)
CopyAndRotate (properties table, count number)
Apply a copy and rotate using a table defining the properties. (Returns a List of Object object.)
CopyAndRotate (origin Point, rotationaxis Vector, angle number, count number)
Copy and rotate the geometry. (Returns a List of Object object.)
CopyAndTranslate (properties table, count number)
Apply a copy and translate using a table defining the properties. (Returns a List of Object object.)
CopyAndTranslate (from Point, to Point, count number)
Copy and translate the geometry. (Returns a List of Object object.)
Delete ()
Deletes the entity.
Duplicate ()
Duplicates the entity. (Returns a Object object.)
GetProperties ()
Returns a table of properties representing the state of the object. The properties table can be used with the SetProperties method to change multiple properties of the object in one step. (Returns a table object.)
SetProperties (properties Object)
Modifies the state of the object using the provided table of properties. This method is used to modify multiple properties of the object in a single step.

## Static Function List

GetDefaultProperties ()
Creates a table containing the default settings to create an object. (Returns a table object.)
