    That's my setup, too. I gave F360 a try the other and it seems that I still don't think the way it does. The help system has plenty of suggestions for problem search terms but it takes a while to slog through them. I'm going to have to dedicate some serious time to F360's YouTube channel. At least, I know that F360 is doable with the Slant Bed.

    I might suggest the Titans of CNC Academy https://academy.titansofcnc.com/ It's free and and simple to follow, step by step, best Fusion 360 tutorial I have found. Has both mill and lathe courses, takes you from zero, to drawing, to CAM, to machining parts in a very short time. I went from zero to making chips in a week and I'm old & slow.

    Fusion 360 works great for slant bed and both of my mills, just a bit of a learning curve.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at Titans' videos after I try the Mecsoft VisualCAD/CAM demo, which includes a Turn module. Their Turn Getting Started video made more sense to me me.
