Drawing Orientation

When detailing parts and assemblies, it seems to have switched the part orientation. Using the world coordinates for both the part postition and the assembly postition, it appears the assembly postition was rotated by 180 degrees. Why does this happen? If using world coordindates for both, should they both be the same orienatation? Please find the attached PDF.

Have you tried changing the coordinate system of the part? Right click on your piece mark in the "Positions" tab of the object inspector, then click "Change coordinate system".

See attached screenshot.
