Moving parts in part environment

155 Views, 2 Replies

I have a bunch of parts that are almost identical except for a few minor changes each time. Most have already been created in Inventor. My problem is that I want to rotate the part so that a face that was once along the XZ plane will now be in the XY plane. Is there anyway to rotate it like this? I would like to do this so that when I bring it into Mastercam, I don't have to rotate it each time.

If this is a mirror part case, bring this part into an assembly then mirror it.

Open up the mirrored part and edit it accordingly.
