Move, Scale, Rotate**
In order to move, scale and rotate blocks, you can use the gumball commands. The Gumball displays a gumball widget on a selected object facilitating move, scale, and rotate transformations around the gumball origin.
By default when you select a block the gumball mode is set to Move. You can activate the other gumball modes with the keyboard keys [W] move, [E] Rotate and [R] Scale.
You can modify your design blocks by pushing and pulling the block faces. This would allow you to have greater control over your massing study, align building faces, create setbacks, and shape more complex building configurations.

Combine Split Block modificaton with Push and Pull edit mode transformatons to create setbacks in your design. The image below shows a sequence of operations to create a multi-tier tower with setbacks at different levels.
