Don't worry about that, you get to choose the machining coordinate system in the CAM.

well I qualified for the free license and installed F360 last night. Now I am like a newb trying to learn how to do what I need to do with this. It's quite different from On-Shape and also from Solidworks so back to square 1. But if this CAM lets me do what I need to do that will be great, so I'll learn it.

Thanks for the suggestions and the help so far guys!

Don't worry about the orientation in fusion360. You set the origin in how you want to cut it in the CAM.
I am pretty sure Fusion360 will be able to do what you want.

Yeah I saw that I could set the origin but the part didn't flip around like I wanted it to. Also I didn't have a "table" showing my my CAM setup like it shows in the tutorials. They show the mill table and vise or fasteners holding the part down.

Granted I just started messing with it yesterday but it seems I'm missing something important in my CAM setup.

Probably literally the "setup"

In the setup section of the CAM you set the stock orientation and also the XYZ for the machining ops.
