Addon for Blender 2.8
Rotate selection, using helper gizmo, without breaking adjacent faces normal directions.
It will help you to block in hard-surface planes more easily.
How to use:
- in mesh edit mode open menu: 'Face' => 'Rotate Face' (at the very bottom)
- or open same menu using Ctrl + F hotkey when having some faces selected.
- or hit spacebar -> search for 'Rotate Face'
There is also 'Bisect mode' - where you cut the mesh with gizmo, rather than rotate face.
