Origin "Model Box Point" is at TopCenter instead of BottomLeft

I have two setups based on identical bodies. Both have origins set as "Model Box Point". One setup has the origin at the bottom left corner of the model box, while the other has the origin at the center of the model box.

 

I can fix this by recreating the setup, but am curious as to why this is stuck at the center. I had at one time set the origin as "Selected Point". Maybe once I do that I can never get back to bottom left???

 

I printed out the relevant properties of these two setups as below:

 

 

 

-------------  -----------------------  ---------------  -------------------
--setup        job_stockInfoDimensionZ  wcs_origin_mode  wcs_origin_boxPoint
A0 Spoilboard  5.61                     modelPoint       top center
A1 Mill        5.61                     modelPoint       top 1
-------------  -----------------------  ---------------  -------------------

 

 

 

It seems I need to change wcs_origin_boxPoint from "top center" to "top 1" (which I presume means top-bottom-left).

 

Is there an editing capability that I'm not seeing?

Yes, you are not seeing the editing capability that is front and centre. All those white dots on the model are the model points... you pick the one you want to be your origin.

That makes sense. I see the available points change when I select either "Model box point" or "Stock box point".

 

However, I am unable to select those points even though the "Model Point" button is blue and says "Point". Is there something else that enables/disables selection of a point?

I think Fusion was in a funny state. I restarted Fusion and now I can select the point.

 

All good. Thanks for the guidance.
