Post subject:  placing right angle 3D headers

I have 2 1x8r 90 deg connector headers on my board. One is on the left edge, and one is on the right edge. When I attach a 3D pattern for this header, both images point to the left. In the "Attach 3D models" the connectors are listed as "J4, J6" so I cannot attach 2 separate (left handed and right handed) 3D models. I tried re-number the pins in the opposite order on the right connector, but this made no difference.

press "R" to rotate in PCB layout?

Great! the connector I rotated scrambled the traces, but that's easy to fix. Lesson learned - if I want 3D images of the completed board I need place the parts in the schematic, create a temp pcb, roughly place patterns, then check the 3D image for the right orientations. It would be helpful to have a "renew schematic from pcb" to fix this after the pcb is modified.
