Hi all,

Please, can anybody help me. I need to create buildings (area feature) from  point features. I only have 1 point for 1 building. So I need to create some buffer around that point  but with rotations.

Thank you in advance....

You might want to show what you have since if you buffer a point you will end up with a circle and rotating a circle isn't very useful.

You can look for 'square buffer' samples on geonet if they would be of use

For example

Thank you for a very quick and useful answer. The only thing that is left unsolved is how to add the appropriate rotation to each of these squares. Is that possible? I have a field with rotation values from 0 to 360.

There are code bits around, but you would have to piece the process together yourself.  For example
