Setting north in model for shadows function?

I generally model places with front being south or street side. If, on the actual site, the building will be angled significantly off a north/south axis, is there a way to set the compass direction of the shadow function as different from the drawing axis?
Hope this gets the idea across.

Use the Solar North extension to set Solar North as desired. It’s in the Extension Warehouse.


Great, will check it out. And thank you!

As has been said, the Solar North plugin enables you to set true north in relation to the model.
There are four settings one needs to verify for correct shadows.

Thanks for the reminder. Having read Patrick O’ Brian, I have been schooled in the importance of latitude & longitude. :wink:
