How can I use a custom coordinate system in a Simulation?

Is there any way to select a different coordinate system in a Simulation study?

I have a simulation setup (static study) that is part of a larger assembly. The default coordinate system does not make sense for the relevant components. I am looking to get the resultant displacement, stress and reaction force in a different direction. I have create my desired coordinate system (through insert>reference component>coordinate system), but during the simulation SW still uses the default system (or at least I can only plot results on the default system). I presume I can change this somewhere? Or do I really need to change the whole orientation of the model?
