How to set orientation of Derived Part "Sketch"

nicholas_withamnicholas_witham Member Posts: 13
I have created a document of standard steel sections with 2 part studios, 1 called rectangular Steel the other is Square Steel. I have a configuration table for each sketch to deetermine the size of steel I import to my other documents.

When I bring any of these into my current document (with the derived tool) I would like to be able to choose the plane on which the sketch gets attached to, and/or set the center position of the derived sketch.

Currently I bring the derived sketch into my current part studio, then I have to extrude it, then I can relocate/reorientate the part using the transform tool. This creates extra steps that i'd like to eliminate.

Does anybody see this as being possible?
If so, how?
