Newbie Question: Blue box/align issue

Hello, I’m trying to align components in Lumion, but even though I thought I had everything associated with the same origin point in Sketchup, some of my components seem to NOT
be associated with it? The only way I can describe this is by including an attached photo. It looks like I need all objects to have the surrounding blue box (bottom object) as opposed to the wrapped blue box upper object), but I do not know how to change this…Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for your help!

One way is to select the upper object > right click on it > explode > instantly group again.
This will make the selection adopt the current drawing axes as the new local group axes, (whatever they currently are).

Be aware that exploding may have the disadvantage of the geometry inside inheriting container’s material and layer.

p.s. save your file first before experimenting or experiment with a simple group first while re-orienting axes to see what I mean.

Thank you so much for your reply, that worked! Sorry for the delay in my response!
