How do I position a part in an assembly at a certain angle relative to another part?

I have three struts that sit on a baseplate. The struts are identical, imported from strut1.SLDPRT, rotated to the proper angle, and mated face-to-face with the baseplate. So far, so good. There should be a way for me to mate them in the program so that they are all positioned at equal angles around the center of the plate (60 degrees) and just touch n the middle. However, I can't seem to find any command that lets me say "position this component at angle X relative to the other component." Even being able to specify that the center points of the faces (where the component origins are for the three struts) should be placed over the three construction lines would help.

 

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
