In-context change the orientation of the initial frame

Patxi_LZPatxi_LZ Member Posts: 9 EDU

When we create a context, we have to choose a mate connector, called M.
This mate connector will define the frame of the context.

Is there a way to change the frame of the context after it's creation ?
For example, when I modify M after the creation of the context,
it does not change the frame of the context even after updating the context.

I want to do that in order to have the "z" in the good direction in the contexts I already created.

    Hmm, I dont think you can directly do what you're asking - THAT SAID, you could just insert the entire in-context Part Studio into an Assembly, group it and then orient it relative to the global XYZ and then export it. Totally parametric, once and done :)
