Setup origin

“Round up to Nearest” to 0


By default, Fusion 360 will place your model in the exact center of your stock. Depending on the size of your stock and the CAM strategies you wish to use, you may want to align your model to the surface of your stock or offset it by some absolute amount. To do this, choose the “Model Position” for the dimension you want to align to, choose the side you want to offset from, and fill in the Offset field with the amount you want to offset by. Entering 0 will align your model flush to that face of your stock.
