Rotate a group of components on a PCB Design

Hi All,

I need to rotate a group of components on a PCB design, is there a way of doing this on Fusion 360 PCB?

I created a group with all the components to see if it helped but can't find a way to rotate them.

 

Best Regards

                 Luis

Hi @luis.moreiraLEUNF 

I hope you are doing well!

For your question, you can select all the components and then Click Rotate command in the Quick Actions of Inspector window.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply, not exactly what I need but good to know about the quick actions menu.

I don't want to rotate each one but the all group around some point but keeping there relative position and rotation to each other. 

 

Best Regards

HI @luis.moreiraLEUNF 

Sorry that I misunderstand your question. I am not very sure the Rotate way you want. I will list other two ways here, please see if it can solve your problem.

Way1: Rotate at the dragged part

1. Select the parts you want to rotate

2.Left Click to Drag the selected parts

3.Keep left Click, Right Click to Rotate

 

Way2: Rotate at the central point of the group

1. Select all the parts you want to Rotate -> Right Click -> Select New Group -> Type any name to the group

2. In Design Manager window -> In Browser Tab -> Select View as Groups -> Select the Group you have created

3.In Inspector window -> Click Rotate command in the Quick Action

Attach the video here to show them clearly.

Hi, 

Way 2 did the job. it's a bit convoluted... I was expecting that if I select a group by selecting the elements using the select group tool and then ask for rotation, that immediately did it. Seems quite logical that you would want to use it that way, so to have it as command should be a given.

Maybe on a new version.

Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Hi @luis.moreiraLEUNF 

I'm glad that you have solved your problem.

For the Group in 2d PCB, it seems complicated because the group boundary is  invisible.

We make the group boundary invisible to make sure the group boundary won't affect the Route or other commands in PCB. 

Another tip is that for schematic, you can see the group boundary and you can Rotate it easily by Right Click at the Group Boundary. You can try it when you need to Rotate parts in Schematic.
