    Default Fusion 360 multple setups

    I camming a two sided part that I made two setups up for, say setup 1 is TOP and setup 2 is BOTTOM.
    What I'm not sure how to do is how to tell the machine, via Fusion 360, to not continue onto BOTTOM until I tell it to so I can flip the part over.
    Any suggestions/tutorials?
    Thank you

    As you haven`t said what control or Post Processor you are using or if you are doing the same operation on the second side this is all I have for you for now.

    When you come to Post out your G code depending on the PP your are using there is often an "Optional Stop" option that you can toggle on or off, if selected it will output an M1 command which will stop the machine after each operation and will require the "Cycle Start" to be pressed on the machine control to set it going again.

    That is the simplest method, give it a try and see if it is what you need.

    I'm no F360 pro but I just create two different setups in Manufacture. One for the top and one for the bottom. Then, I create my various tool paths under each setup. I add two "holders" to the model, each with a hole in it and create a separate setup to drill the holes. Once I'm happy with my tool paths, I select the ones for the top, post process to a "top" file, same for bottom and then holes. Run the holder drills first, use pegs to hold the blank in place, then run bottom, flip blank and run top (or top first, then bottom depending on what I'm doing). Since I have to manually intervene to flip, I don't see the need to have everything in one file.

    This is how I do it, as well. In addition, I often have projects where I zero off the top of the piece for one profile and then off the spoilboard for another, so multiple files are the norm for me.
