In an Autocad drawing, you have the X,Y,Z coordinates. The "X" and "Y" being the 2D plane, and the "Z" coordinate gives the model its 3 dimensional properties. In other words, if I drew 2 lines on a flat piece of paper depicting a cross, one line would represent the X and one line would represent the Y. If for example I hold the pencil vertical on that piece of paper where the two lines intersect, the pencil would represent the Z coordinate, which gives the model that 3 Dimensional properties.

What I would like to have when I import a drawing to "Keyshot" is to have the Z coordinate perpendicular to my screen with the X&Y coordinate flat as if looking down on the sheet of paper.

Keyshot always asks which coordinate (X,Y,Z) is "UP" when importing and displays the model in a rotated configuration.

I have tried to achieve what I described above but to no avail.

I hope I explained that much more clearly. Thank you.
