Manufacturing an object on one side then on the other side?

Hello I'm trying to manufacture a part but I need to cam it on both sides due to some accessibility issues with the part. I've tried going back to the design tab and rotating the object 180 degrees but that messes up the top half of the cam. If anybody knows a solution to this that would be great. 

Thank You

Tanner

Okay, it sounds like you might have some gaps in your understanding about how Fusion CAM works. 

1) For your first Setup, you should define the Z and X axis alignments. Create all your toolpaths

2) For your 2nd Setup, again, you would define the Z and X alignments, but referencing the opposite face. You would then select "Stock from Preceding Op" and "Continue Rest Machining".

I'll try to get you a quick video.

 

 

Do NOT try to rotate the part around, that's just going to make a mess out of everything, as you've seen.
