Exported part orientation
Didn't we used to have the ability to export parts and select how to set the orientation? I am having my students start running analysis on part models using SolidWorks. I want them to model in Onshape (for now) and export for SW. However, OS uses Z up and SW uses Y up. I want to write my instructions to describe the direction of forces and part orientation. I know they will get confused when Z becomes Y and Y becomes Z. Any ideas that a third grader will understand (because these are college students). ;-)
