    setup

    I have a part that needs to be milled on the top and then turn to where the side faces up and then mill that side.
    I don't know where to look in help how to do a different setup.
    Where do I start to find out how to do this?, is this in the "stock wizard"

    Use Work Coordinate Systems, it's mainly down to planning, reference points on work, stock or both, work stops and accurate set up though.

    If your machined side doesn't lend itself to be being held in a vice for the second op you can machine a soft jaw which will support it derived from your part geometry or that of the machined stock saved from a completed simulation run.
