12.2.28. Transformation

Transformations are convenient for altering a contour in various ways. It can be rotated, scaled, moved, or a combination of these.
 
Let's try it on this contour.
 
 
To transform it, we open the parameters for the contour layer and click on the Transformation tab.
 
First, we will rotate it around the center of the workpiece. To find out where the center is, hover the mouse cursor over the center point (automatically created when you added the workpiece).
 
 
In the Transformation tab, we input our rotation values.
 
 
 
When you duplicate a layer with transformations, the transformations will be added to the last transformed object, as demonstrated in tutorial 1 (The Canon Wheel).
 
 
Duplicated copies with transformations.
 
As an alternative to using the move function, you can click and drag the contour using the mouse.
