How to realign axes to a rotated part

I derived a part and added extrusion.

The original part is rotated at an arbitrary angle and i want to align the origin planes differently.

Can i do that?

Use the Move Bodies command.

You can translate (straight line) and rotate the part as needed.

You might do a search on Move Bodies here as there is a trick to Rotate.
