I am having trouble aligning a part with the normal views because it imported at an angle
Changing a models orientation to match the xyz axis.
Jeremy has it:
there are 3 basic approaches.
1) use "move/copy bodies" feature to move the part to where you want.
2) put the part in an assy and mate it to the assy planes/coordinates, save as a part.
3) add a coordinate system to the part where you want, save as a parasolid, choosing the new coordinates system, re-import to SW.

Thank you for forming this into an easy to understand reply. I had thrown my hands up at this particular issue, as I have gotten so many parts coming up from other people at odd angles. I know how to mate parts to the origin, but had no idea I could reorient the part plane by plane. This is so helpful.
Add a Coordinate System (CS) at a suitable location & orientation
Save as a parasolid specifying the new CS in the options
Import the parasolid
