Model orientation

Several times over the last few years I have received models from people which were modelled orthogonally. When I asked them to properly orient the building they said that that was not possible in their software (read not Autodesk) and that I had to rotate it in Navisworks. 

First of all it's my opinion that anyone supplying a model has to take care of getting it at the right position and at the right orientation. Because any rounding errors will throw of the clash detection. If everyone would make the same mistake it wouldn't be a problem but if some get it right and others don't, than we are in a world of hurt.

Imagine the following conversation at the building site... You wouldn't accept it there either.

Model like you are going to build!
