Hi @jonpendleton57 ,


Without seeing the specific situation. You can use Move/Copy (shortcut press M) and translate and rotate the model.

Hi @jonpendleton57 

If you convert the mesh to a solid body, then you could use the Align tool. If converted to the meshes into solid Components, you can use the Joint tool to move them together.


Hope this helps.
