Default Changing rotation axis

Hello again,

Although I have suffered a bit, I've managed to create a reasonable mesh for a rotor-stator system on ICEM. However, when I came to perform the computation on CFX, I realize that perhaps it is necessary that the mesh be properly aligned with the correspondent axis of rotation on ICEM.

As you can see in the images, I would like to realign the whole mesh so that its centre is actually the curve I drew through the points 0,0,0 and 0,100,0 (ie. y axis).



Also, since this mesh only shows the rotor, I would like to know how to achieve the same re-positioning with the stator so that they end up properly aligned (ie match two corners of each mesh to the exact same location, perhaps).

Thank you in advance!
