Thank you Thomas
Using camera=0 caused my cone not to do rotations related to the camera position. 
Cone still rotates not about itself, but about axis of global coordinate system.
Do you have any other ideas?

Hi Pawel,

have you tried using the camera=0 argument?

cmd.rotate(axis, angle, object='yourcone', camera=0)
