Hello carlosban71, the way to place 3D solids and 2D objects ( like blocks for example ) is the same.
I would ALIGN them from center to center in that case.
In 3D you will indicate 3 "source" points and 3 "destination" points.
Do indicate the 2 first points along the center lines so that your solid is perfectly in the correct orientation ( I call this "doing the hinge" ), this is important because sometime you ALIGN object thinking it will be OK if done with only 2 points but the result will not be correct.
In any case take various viewpoints to verify the correctness.
I think that it would be interresting for you to find curses and/or tutorials on the internet.
Eventually you could take a look at my file : 3D SOLID 01.dwg that I have placed in the CAD/BIM Blocks library here in the site.

The ALIGN command is what you are looking for.  A minimum of two source and destination points are required.

On the other hand and if the centerlines of the two solids are perfectly parrallel you can use a simple MOVE from center to center.
I can see on the right side of the shaft a cylinder with an centerline offset that you will have eventually to ROTATE or ALIGN to place correctly.
