How to Correct Inventor Models Importing Side Ways in Showcase

When importing Inventor data into Showcase you may have found that it appears on its side. There are ways of rotating the geometry to the correct orientation, however there is an easier way.
  • Import your Inventor model as normal into Showcase, using default Inventor templates, it will generally appear on its side.

  • To correct the orientation, right click on the file name in the Import Status window, select Model Properties from the flyout menu.

  • In the Original Model Properties dialogue, change Original up-axis to +Z, rather than the default +Y.

  • Now your model will appear the right way up, just need to Edit Position on Floor.
