I am using ultimaker 4.6.1 and  follow the instructions to rotate:


  1. Select the model you would like to rotate to open the model toolbar on the left side of the screen
  2. Select the third tool to rotate the model

The rotate tool is particularly useful to reduce the amount of support structure needed, change the layer bonding direction of the print or to increase the model's footprint for better build plate adhesion.


But I can only rotate around the red axis, the two others do not react.

May you please help me.


PS: My Printer is a Ender-3 Pro
