Complex Rotations

When you rotate a shape in Tinkercad, it rotates around the shape’s center. What if you want to rotate around a different point?

Tinkercad allows you to choose your resolution by providing three rings. Once you start the rotation you can move your mouse over the appropriate band. The center band allow you to adjust the rotation by full degrees. The inner band adjusts the angle in increments of 22.5° (half of 45°) and the outer band allows you the most precision.

Let’s understand by designing a 3- blade propeller.
