When you load a file like that, you have some options to rotate the object. Interactive Rotation.

But you do not rotate (tilt) things by numbers like .020. .020 from where? You tilt with an angle.

Frankly, it is much easier to tilt models in the software that created them.

BUT, you can also tilt a model using the Tilt function in the Components Property tab. Works well.
