This node defines a 3D rotation about an arbitrary axis through the origin. The rotation is accumulated into the current transformation, which is applied to subsequent shapes. The rotation field provides a variety of methods for specifying the rotation.


SoSFRotation rotation
Rotation specification.


Creates a rotation node with default settings.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.

Action Behavior

SoGLRenderAction, SoCallbackAction, SoGetBoundingBoxAction, SoRayPickAction
Accumulates rotation transformation into the current transformation.

Returns the matrix corresponding to the rotation.

File Format/Defaults

Rotation {
rotation	0 0 1  0
