I’m not sure what you mean by “simple cyclohexane” form. (There are a few conformations for cyclohexane, but I’ve never heard one of the called “simple.”)

But I can confirm that if you insert that file:

Rotate the view with the “Navigate” tool and de-select all:


It’s definitely a chair. If you don’t like that orientation, either use the “Manipulate” tool to rotate the molecule or the “Navigate” tool to rotate the view.
