RotateShape[Cuboid...


Hi,
On Mathematica3 for mac, the following input produces 2 rods crossing
with a 90° angle, as expected. That's OK.

Show[Graphics3D[Cylinder[.3,1,10] ],RotateShape[
         Graphics3D[Cylinder[.3,1,10 ] ],
                  0,Pi/2,0]]

But a quite similar RotateSphape input applied to Cuboids doesn't behave
in the same manner. Why? (I expected the top Cudoid being oriented
differently than the botton one).

Show[Graphics3D[Cuboid[{-1,-1,0},{1,1,1}]] ,
  RotateShape[Graphics3D[Cuboid[{-1,-1,1},{1,1,2}]],
                 0,1,0]]

The mathematica book state that cuboids faces are parallel to the axes.
Should it means that RotateShape doesn't apply?
