Hello and thanks in advance for any answers.

Ive done a 3D scan of a bottle using polyworks and it can be exported to either IGES or STEP format. The problem im facing is trying to align the 'front' of the bottle up with say the front plane and the top of the bottle with the top plane.


Ive looked into coordinate systems in solidworks but as the model imports as STL graphics it doesnt have any features to latch on to.
