Select axis

Hi,

I want to use a Yeti Tool cnc with Fusion 360. 
In the documentation of the Yeti Tool, the axis are as follows:

info_1-1675088274949.png


Hope you guys can help me out!! Thanks!


Unfortunatelly, in the setup, I am unable to recreate this setup of axis. When I recreate the X and Y, the Z is upside down. When I flip it, the X or Y is not as it should be.
How to manage this?
I am running multiple machines, so changing the default set up of the axis will not work as it will break the way the other machines are set up.

Does the Yeti have actual axis designations that correlate with the colors? So, Y is green, X is red, blue is Z?

Yes.

Here is the document I referred to. 
https://www.yetitool.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Fusion-360-Workflow-Guide-Rev1.1.pdf

See page 5.
They use the Y as UP. But of course I use the Z

Right, but on page 20 of that document, we're shown this image:

Setting our WCS like this will give us the result you're looking for:

It appears that their documentation is skipping a few steps and images.

So looking at these picture, their document is speak against itself? Because on page 4, home is set in the far left corner, but looking at the picture that you screenshotted, home is in the far right corner.

Out of curiosity what does the WCS look like of the actual drawing of the part posted, is it upside down as well? if so that might be the issue, if you design in the UCS you want to use then you can just mimic it in the setup.

As I suggested towards the end of my last post; there are inaccuracies in the documentation. Do you have a user interface (computer control screen) that displays the axis? Looking over their website and videos, nothing is jumping out at me as "we do things backwards from industry standard" (in regards to axis designation)

Thanks for your reply.

On the display of the machine, the axis are set as this image:

Therefore, I am trying to get Fusions axis the same way.

That image does not correlate to other images that they show in their own documentation.

Question; have you tried a simple program to observe what goes on?

 

-EDIT-

Their documentation refers to "Set Y axis along the long edge, and Z is pointing up"

Right off the bat; setting Orientation to "Model Orientation" is not very good instruction, as it assumes that you (or the person that created the model) designed it properly with manufacturing in mind (that it's been aligned the way you want to machine it). Hence, why they follow up with:
