Specifies a clockwise 3-D rotation.
A component of the direction vector about which the element is rotated.
The angle by which the element is rotated. This value is expressed as a number followed by a supported angle unit.

The element rotates by the angle specified in the last parameter, and about the [x,y,z] direction vector described by the first three parameters. If the direction vector is not of unit length, it will be normalized. A direction vector that cannot be normalized, such as [0, 0, 0], results in no rotation.
The following code snippet is an example of the rotate3d function in use. When applied to a square blue div element, it has the effect illustrated in the image. (The light-blue square indicates the original position of the transformed element.)
