Hello,

I'm creating "square buffers" around a point.  Using the buffer tool than taking the minimum bounding geometry of that buffer.  I would like the square created from that to be orientated with one of the sides pointed up or North.  When the bounding geometry feature is created the orientation that it is rotated is added as the "MBG_Orientation field in the attribute table.  Is there a way to rotate the features based off of this field, or just North facing with out doing it manually in an edit session.  I am trying to do this in Model builder.

Thanks

If you have an ArcInfo (or "Advanced" in ArcGIS 10.1+ terms) level license, just use the ENVELOPE geometry option.  If you don't have ArcInfo, download and use Dan Patterson's Bounding Containers toolbox.
