Set the interactive style to Trackball Actor.

This allows to rotate actors around the scene. The controls are similar to the default Trackball Camera style, but movements transform specific objects under the mouse cursor.

For a 3-button mouse, the left button is for rotation, the right button for zooming, the middle button for panning, and ctrl + left button for spinning objects around the axis connecting the camera with the their center. Alternatively, shift + left button pans.


Create a simple scene with a plotter that has the Trackball Actor interactive style:

>>> import pyvista as pv
>>> plotter = pv.Plotter()
>>> _ = plotter.add_mesh(pv.Cube(center=(1, 0, 0)))
>>> _ = plotter.add_mesh(pv.Cube(center=(0, 1, 0)))
>>> plotter.show_axes()
>>> plotter.enable_trackball_actor_style()
