    Rotate by Delta XYZ doesn't rotate by the correct amount

    Dmitry Ponomarev

      I need to rotate a part in my assembly exactly 45 degrees and I have it properly constrained (cylindrical)

      Now I use "Rotate Component" and I enter 45 degrees.

      When I do smart dimension between two previosuly parallel faces, it shows 39.34.. degrees

       

      Initially I thought this rotated by Z in the viewport plane and not about the real Z-axis, but when I tried again with from the top down view, the rotation was incorrect again

      Why is this happening? This seems like a major bug

       

      This is solidworks 2012

       

      Thanks,
