Changing SW Coordinates arrangement

   Before I get to my question I will provide a little backround information. I work for an aerospace company so all our models are in what is called Aircraft Coordinates (i.e. Water Line, Butt Line and Station). These are directly releated to the X, Y & Z coordinates in soldiworks. But in real aircraft coordinates as used by other companies and mostly all FEA software. These coordinates do not adhere to the standard.

   So what I want to know is it possible to change the default direction that the X , Y & Z icon currently sits? I have a attached a quick snap shot of what I am talking about. Currently the "Z" is in the direction that I want the "X" to be in and the "Y" is in the current direction that I want the "Z" to be in. See where I am heading.

    Can anyone tell if it is possible to change this and if so how would I go about doing so?


Thanks allot for your help.
