Ellipse object rotation

I have a flat 2d ellipse entity that I want to rotate on its side. From what I know and tried changing the rotation attribute only spins the ellipse. Here’s an image of what I have currently:

. So what I want is this ellipse to be vertical instead of lying horizontally. Is there anyway I can achieve what I want? I’ve also tried to change the orientation of the entity but alas that doesn’t do anything as well.

Thanks in advance,


Thank you for sharing this issue with the community. Orienting entities is certainly a common issue that folks face! To get to the bottom of this issue it would be helpful if you could share a little bit more information about your implementation. For instance, are you adding the object to the viewer as an entity or a primitive? Sharing a sandcastle demo that showcases what you have so far would also be helpful :grinning: :rocket: Looking forward to learning more!


Hi Sam,

I did add the object as an entity. But now I’ve realized that the flat ellipse isn’t the best shape for what I need to do. I’ve changed the object to a cylinder and now I’m able to orientate the object to my liking. However, I am running into an issue where when I increase the length of the cylinder, it increases it from both sides, however I just want to increase it to the right while the left side stays in place. How would I go about doing this? Here is what I’ve been working with: here. NOTE: you need to click on the cone entity before changing the length on the slider.

Thanks for the response and help,
