Procedure

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. Load the CAD dataset.
  3. Right-click the CAD layer and select Properties.
  4. Click the Transformations tab.
  5. Click Enable Transformations.
  6. Click the Rotate, Scale, Translate option in the Transform By box.
  7. Type the From and To coordinate values.
  8. Type the Angle value.
