Moving, Rotating and Scaling 3D Objects
To move, rotate or scale the 3-D object first select it by clicking on it. You must be in pick mode rather than view mode.
You can quickly switch between pick and view mode by pressing the space bar.
When selected a collection of transform manipulators appears as shown below.
