Is there a way to rotate prism26 object when set to 0 degrees in Angle to XY plane?

See attached image.

 

I like to model all the tiles in my houses for scheduling, estimating and communication purposes.  The prism26 object is almost exactly what I need but I cant rotate it in view to set which side of the tile should be at the bottom.

Is there a trick to getting it to rotate like shown here:

Why don't you create a custom profiled beam with the shape of your tile (if you want to use it for walls).?

You can rotate then to any angle with the  beam axis rotation....

I don't use beams much so I never thought of it as an option, would be nice if the hex object had the ability to rotate as needed because regardless of application, the one way to apply wont work in every case so this flexibility seems like a good option to have built into the object.  At least they added some ability to rotate, hopefully this gets added eventually

Change it then to a morph, rotate it and save it as an object. Another way.  Don' t forget to adjust the correct thickness.
