ThreeDFormat.RotationY property (Word)
Returns or sets the rotation of the extruded shape around the y-axis, in degrees. Read/write Single.
expression An expression that returns a 'ThreeDFormat' object.
The RotationY property can be a value from - 90 through 90. A positive value indicates rotation to the left; a negative value indicates rotation to the right.
To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the x-axis, use the RotationX 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.
This example adds three identical extruded ovals to myDocument and sets their rotation around the y-axis to - 30, 0, and 30 degrees, respectively.
Set myDocument = ActiveDocument With myDocument.Shapes With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 30, 50, 25).ThreeD .Visible = True .RotationY = -30 End With With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 70, 50, 25).ThreeD .Visible = True .RotationY = 0 End With With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 110, 50, 25).ThreeD .Visible = True .RotationY = 30 End With End With
