Moving components which are not centered to origin misplaces when moved on 3D.

Is there something I am missing or components which are not symmetric and not aligned to origin are being misplaced when I click on them in 3D environment.

This does not happen on any of the resistors or capacitors which are symmetric and aligned to origin.


Example:

1. This is how it looks when pushed from PCB.

1. How it originally looks when pushed from PCB.1. How it originally looks when pushed from PCB.

2. This is how it looks like when I click the component to move it.

3. This is how it looks like after realignment.

4.This is what happens when I click ok to finish

Edit: I am not sure if it has something to do with center and orgin.

This is the component:

Edit 2: I have just found out some of my components which are also not symmetric does not do this. I am starting to this has something to do with changing the origin after the first same of the model.

I found a workaround.

1.Go back to Electronic library open the package menu from your content manager. 
2.Choose the packge and open the model that gives you trouble and delete Body/component inside it.

3.Now before you link any 3D model to your electronic 3D model make sure the one that you are going to insert have the same origin and rotation you want to have in your electronic 3D model(Do not make any rotation and component movements in electronic 3D model). So make all the changes on 3D model you want to insert to your 3D electronic model then insert/link the 3D model to your electronic model.

You can also edit in place if you have not broken the link (Have not tried yet.)

Now I can move components according to PCB and mechanical fittings.
