Changing orientation of object in Paraview
 
Hello,

I have some problems with the orientation of an stl. file loaded into my case. I want to simulate an airflow trough a build environment, and i want to use the dominant wind direction.

When i load the stl file in paraview, the object has a fixed orientation. I've tried to rotate the blockmesh to simulate a certain wind direction but the problem is that my snappyHexMesh doesn't rotate with the blockMesh.
So the snappyHexMesh and the blockMesh are not parallel.

Does somebody can help me changing the orientation in Paraview or changing the direction of the snappyHexMesh (perhaps with a rotation of the mesh)?

Regards,

Jochem
