If certain parts in your model appear upside down (have the wrong up-direction), follow these steps to correct the issue

Applicable to the following products and plans:
All products and plans


If the all the models in your workspace have the incorrect up direction, you may have the incorrect ‘Up Direction’ setting. Adjust the up direction in the 3D models settings
