Why is my stock in Manufacture set up skewed off my part?

Pretty sure this is a Manufacture issue, so posting here

 

I have a circular pattern of parts. Cutting them out of .875 round bar. When creating my set up I select fixed size cylinder, and fusion sets the stock skewed to the right of the origin of my design. 

 

I can move the origin over by using "selected point" or "model origin"  but then my z is not on the top of the stock where I want it. 

 

What did I do wrong here? File attached!

 

Thank you!

When selecting "Cylinder" as your stock definition, you should also "Select Axis" to let Fusion know where the centerline is. If you don't do that, Fusion tends to put it in locations that don't make a lot of sense to the casual observer.

I would then select "Stock Box Point" for the origin:
