Rotate 3D Images

Rotating a 3D model is often used for offering views from different angles and getting a better grasp of the image as a whole. Whether it's the 3D image of a video game character or the design of a wind wheel, by rotating it the viewer will get a fuller image of what the entire object actually looks like. The feature also offers the chance to completely change the initial image by altering its spatial orientation. For example, if you shift the X and Z axes of a 3D spiral by 90 degrees you'll get a vertical elliptical shape.

With reaConverter's new feature, a great variety of 3D images can be rotated with only a few clicks. The powerful converter supports over 30 extensions of 3D images created with both well-known and rarely used software for three-dimensional modeling, animation and rendering — from Autodesk's 3DS Max and Lightwave 3D to TrueSpace and MilkShape 3D.

Rotation can be done via one or more of the 3 axes used in the representation of the image. X is the horizontal axis and by modifying it you choose the number of degrees by which the object will be rotated from left to right. Y is the vertical axis, allowing you to move the object up and down, and Z is the axis pointing "out of the screen", towards you, and by altering it you shift the object clockwise or counterclockwise.

Load Files

Load the 3D image you intend to convert, either by manual selection from your hard drive or by using the drag-and-drop tool. You can also add entire folders or click Advanced file select and select only one or more particular 3D formats from a folder that contains several types of image formats.

3D Formats Loading Settings

Go to the Menu button and then to Loading settings — 3D formats loading settings.

In the new window you will be able to insert figures that define 3D rotation by degrees for each the 3 axes. Depending on how you would like the output image to look, you can insert coordinates for one or more of them. For example, if you fill the cell for the X coordinate and leave the rest blank, the 3D object will get rotated only from left to right.

You can optionally, go to the Edit images tab and pick one of the many available features, such as adding watermarks etc. Please note — applying image editing will rasterize your image.

Save the Result

Finally, go to Saving options and select the location of the output files, as well as their extension. Last but not least, click on the desired output extension from the buttons placed in the lower part of the window. In case you are looking for a particular one and don't see it listed there, click the Plus button and a new window will appear, with all supported formats.

Then simply press the Start button and your 3D rotated images will soon be done.
