Change the orientation of an imported component

Creator
Creator

I have imported a STEP file and the imported component is 45 deg is orientated. I mean the coordination axis of the component is 45 deg rotated around X. So, when I set it to show the standard (top, front, etc) views, they are all showing rotated views.

 

How can I fix this? I tried to move all of the faces of the component by -45 deg around X, it seems working. However, I am wondering if this is the right way of doing it or not?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

You can use move object command.

In the result, make sure to select move original.

Select the model (or faces if not solid), and move/rotate it to the desired position/orientation.

Thanks for your comment.

I tried move object, but it can not select any of the imported features/solids. Am I missing something here?

check if your model is an assembly or not.
If Assembly use move component, if not Use move object and check your selection filter (no selection).

Hope I could help you.
