  • Rotating a 3D Model

    I have imported a 3D .stp file into a footprint for an aluminum electrolytic capacitor. Does Altium have the capability to rotate/flip the model along the z-axis? All of the discussion boards and help files I have consulted speak about rotating and flipping along the x-axis and y-axis only. The model is rotated 90deg with respect to the z-axis when I import it (the component is laying on its side)- I need to be able to rotate it upright. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The situation has been resolved. Double click the component to bring up the 3D Body window and under "3D Model Type" enter 90deg into "Rotation Xdeg"- this rotates the part about the x-axis 90deg, up-righting the component along the z-axis.
