fix parts off axis after extruding to be on x axis

Hi guys, 
When I extrude a part it usually will mess up the orientation with the x-axis. The problem I have is when I download it to 3d print the part will not be on the x axis to easily print. I was wondering if there was a way to move the part to the x axis before I download it?

    You could use a different plane (right plane) to start your part then it would extrude along the X axis. You can also use the transform command in part studio or assemble your parts along the X axis in an assembly.
