Following the tutorial it clamps the part and not the stock - how to fix this?

I'm following the tutorial to learn how to model a vice as a fixture in CAM, however the instructions fit the part into the vice and do not account for the stock around the part.  I want to have the stock clamped (as would happen in real life) not the part clamped (as if it were already finished) can this be done? Is this an error in the tutoral? 

 

FWIW I also don't want to 'bodge' it guessing at say 10mm stock to one side etc i'm pretty sure that will result in endmill breakage / vice damage. TIA

Just add the stock offset when you're positioning the part in the vise.

When you edit the Manufacturing Model, you can use joints to position the vise jaws.  Use the stock offsets in the joint dialog.

Many thanks - it's a shame Autocad does not make this easier and allow you to locate a joint directly from the stock which is what happens in real life (you clamp the stock)

I agree, it's certainly not obvious.
