Hi Patric,

For these purposes, the UV mode would be recommendable. The UV layout should correspond to the intended direction of individual parts (in a similar way as on attached screen-shot). This way, you can easily control the overall Surface - Direction in combination with the Transform - Translation / Rotation / Scale values. Attaching a sample scene. Hope you'll find it useful.

Best regadrs,
