Back your camera farther away from the turbine.. Your mouse moment will be larger then if you are close up to it.

check the faq for direct hight value input (in lumion the Y value...)

instead of using mouse movement

select object - enter value

Hi Andy, here's how:

Build mode -> Select the wind turbine -> Edit properties -> A numerical type-in window is displayed on your right -> Type in the desired altitude in the Y field.

This numerical type-in window is unfortunately not available when you use the Basic Animation or Advanced Animation effects.
