Dear Solidworks user,


I'm a relativly new user and recently made one of my first big assemblies, now I wanted to start with the drawings.

I am struggling to find the correct orientation of the drawings, because the axis are not alligned to the correct planes of the drawing, but rather random.

I have found several threads online that give possible solutions but have yet to found a clear answer that works for me, or better, that I am able to complete

Picture: As you can see the top drawing is the model insterted if I use the "front" view, the second drawing is the one how it should be, which I did by turning the assembly manually and using "current" view.


I am using a mix of a student version and a 2014 full version and have included the files.



Thanks in advance
