ThreeDFormat.RotationX Property (Excel)

Returns or sets the rotation of the extruded shape around the x-axis in degrees. Can be a value from - 90 through 90. A positive value indicates upward rotation; a negative value indicates downward rotation. Read/write Single .

Syntax

expression. RotationX

expression A variable that represents a ThreeDFormat object.

Remarks

To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the y-axis, use the RotationY property of the ThreeDFormat object. To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the z-axis, use the Rotation property of the Shape object. To change the direction of the extrusion's sweep path without rotating the front face of the extrusion, use the SetExtrusionDirection method.

Example

This example adds three identical extruded ovals to myDocument and sets their rotation around the x-axis to - 30, 0, and 30 degrees, respectively.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1) 
With myDocument.Shapes 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 30, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = -30 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 70, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = 0 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 110, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = 30 
 End With 
End With
