Hi,

I just noticed that models have a different orientation in the default picture and the 3D applet. The applet apparently uses a rendering orientation with the z-axis pointing away from the screen. So a model that is positioned correctly in the default image and the thumbnails, will lay flat on it's back in the 3D viewer which makes my models look rather silly in 3D.
The same happens with the bounding box. A model that is 10 cm high and 1 cm wide is displayed as 1 cm high and with a depth of 10 cm. I think this could be confusing for customers. It would be great if this could be fixed.

Mark.
