The transform tools
can transform objects according to certain conditions. Some of them,
such as Array, can also create copies of objects.
These tools (except for
Array, Snapshot, Spacing Tool, and Clone And Align) are available
on the default
toolbar; the remainder are on the
toolbar. Also, they all appear on the
- Transform Toolbox
The Transform Toolbox
contains functions for easy object rotation, scaling, and positioning
as well as for moving object pivots.
- Mirror Selected
Clicking Mirror displays
the Mirror dialog, which enables you to move one or more objects
while mirroring their orientation.
- Array Flyout
The Array flyout, available
provides access to various tools for creating arrays of objects.
The Array command displays
the Array dialog, which enables you to create an array of objects
based on the current selection.
Choosing Tools Snapshot opens the Snapshot
dialog. This enables you to clone an animated object over time.
- Spacing Tool
The Spacing tool lets
you distribute objects based on the current selection along a path
defined by a spline or a pair of points.
- Clone and Align Tool
The Clone And Align
tool lets you distribute source objects based on the current selection
to a second selection of destination objects. For example, you can
populate several rooms simultaneously with the same furniture arrangement.
Similarly, if you import a CAD file that contains 2D symbols that
represent chairs in a conference room, you can use Clone And Align
to replace the symbols with 3D chair objects en masse.
- Align Flyout
The Align flyout, available
provides access to six different tools for aligning objects.
