Orient model for 3D printing

Hi all,
I just upgraded to Simplify3D v 5. My parts will do not lay flat on the Simplify3D simulated bed. Is there an easy way to orient my part to x, Y, or Z plane before exporting .stl file. I don’t want to have to rotate the model manually. I have tried that and it is to frustrating and time waisted. I need an automatic way to perform this function.

Try projecting to a plane

I use Simplify3D as well. I’m on a Mac. I use Command-L which lets you select a surface to lay on the bed. Not sure what the shortcut key is on Windows.
