# How to rotate object on axis (planet)?

Ok Im not sure whether this has been addressed specifically but I have some planet orbit rings that I need to rotate ON the axis, meaning they stay at an angle but rotate -

so far Ive parented the ring to an empty and am just rotating the empty which results in this (NOT good):

The tilt should always be more/less like #1 - how can I do this?

• I think to achieve this, you need to change the transformation orientation from global to local – masterj2001 Jun 7 '18 at 0:47
