CAM model move or rotate

Can you move or rotate a model while in CAM setup to change the way it sits in the machining workspace?

No, but I think there's another way of doing what you're looking for.

When you create a Setup, select "Select Z and X axis". Once that's done, define what surface is normal to the Z axis and then select an edge (not face) to define your X axis.

Thanks Seth. Yes i thought that would be the work around but i would rather see the model basically sitting in the machining orientation to the grid which i look at as the table. So I will have to ask the designer to save the model the way i want to machine it correct.

It's not a "workaround", but the way Fusion has been built. There are some other tools one could use:

1) In the Design workspace, just rotate your part to the preferred orientation

2) In any workspace, reset your Home position to your preferred view (right click on the View Cube)

Yes that will work. Thank you.
