This seems like it should eb easy, but I searched and could not find any help with it.
I have a part model created by our customer. I need to make an assembly to design tooling for the part. When the part model was created the face they selected for the front is the face that I want to be the top in my tooling assembly.
If I insert the part into my assembly it is automatically inserted in the assembly with the part front side as it was designed. I tried opening the part and changing the view orientation of the part but when I try to insert it it is still their top face facing towards my front. Any suggestions on how to either change the orientation or unlock the part so I can mate a different face to my top plane?
