    Hi, any help appreciated. I'm sure this is easy, but I am very new to this. I have created ceiling fabrics in wireframe and made them into surfaces and objects. How do I make them change elevation? So one end of the drape is at 16' height and the other end of the drape is at 22' height? How could this be done with truss for example, with one end at one height and the other end at a taller point?

    Thanks!

    you can rotate an object around a point (say the 22' height). then click rotate, and choose the end point as your point to rotate around. you can then specify an angle, or freehand use the mouse and click.

    sometimes it's easier to draw in the coordinates on your original object when you cxreate it. instead of clicking in the wireframe, using the (x,y,z) coordinates and typing in the destination coords of your start point and all other points in the lines and surfaces, you can actually specify where you want your surface to be from the start.

    hope that made sense and helps?
