Rotate grouped luminaires

Post by AntoonB » Wed Dec 30, 2020 8:05 am

Hello,

In an EVO light calculation I have a set of luminaires that I have grouped
(via Light, Copy and Arrange) and which of I would like to rotate
the complete group along the current origin point (which is automatically
the centerpoint of the created group), but with a certain angle (45º).
But I can only rotate the group via the function with the mouse but
that is not precise enough in this case.

Is it possible to enter somewhere an angle of 45º to rotate this grouped luminaires ?

BR,

AntoonB

Hello AntoonB,

If you switch from the "Simple planning" to the "Building and outdoor planning" workspace, you have the possibility to enter the rotation numerically. Please have a look at the screenshot below.

Thank you Csuleiman,

For your possible solution.
But that is not exactly what I meant.

I have attached to make more clear what my question is.

In the first example this is the situation with 5 luminaires that are
inserted as 5 individual luminaires. They are not mounted in line
so I can't insert them as a luminaire arrangement.
But in the second and third example the block is rotated 45º.
And the luminaires are to be rotated as well 45º in Z-axis direction
so they get different mounting heights.
To do that I group them in the menu "Copy and arrange".

But in the second example I only can rotate this group
by mouse (see red arrow) with the "rotate-icon"
And there I would like to enter "45º" so the group
will have exactly the same angle as the block has.

In the third example I have managed to rotate the group
to about the right angle.

Sometimes I have such situation with 30 or more luminaires.

BR,

AntoonB

Dear AntoonB,

I just tried to reproduce the problem you described, but I did not succeed.

Can you please send us a problematic project for an analysis of the problem to the mail address 'Support@dial.de' and describe again exactly what is not working and how we can reproduce it?

Dear AntoonB,

After you have grouped the luminaires, it is possible to rotate all luminaires exactly at the same time if you switch back to the luminaire view and enter the rotations there as you can see in the screenshot below.
