Is there a way to set or change whether Y or Z up is used when importing 3D files (.obj)?

    That seems like a reasonable thing to have; some models are just set up with different coordinate systems. I've opened ticket #14394 for this feature, and we'll post back here when we've added it.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thanks Jeff,
    Most 3D programs I have use Y up while most CAD programs use Z up. Rhino 3D has an option to change Y/Z up when importing or exporting (see image).
