How to Rotate Elements in Autodesk Revit 2020

How to Rotate Elements Quickly in Autodesk Revit 2020

Learn how to use your space bar to rotate components in any model when working in Revit.


To demonstrate how to rotate elements with the space bar in Revit, we're going to place a couple of chairs in a hallway, by a straight wall and an angled wall.

Select the component you want to use from the Components tab.

Hover it on the drawing space where you want to place it and press space bar for it to rotate. 

This works on angled walls too. Take your component, hover over the angled wall, press your space bar to rotate until you have the perfect position, and it will lock to the angle of the wall.
