Is it possible to change the orientation of the default geometry?


I would like to use the below ISO vehicle coordinate system for an OnShape document:
Image result for iso vehicle coordinate system
WIth the current default geometry, the front plane is normal to the y-axis, the right plane is normal to the x-axis, and the top plane is normal to the z-axis. I would like the front plane to be normal to the x-axis, and the right plane to be normal to the y-axis. Is it currently possible to make this change?
