    After putting correct value of new axis, your model will be aligned according to the tools machining direction.

    That way dear Dave am already illustrated that with changing the work-plane will be let think the machine for side up.

    There is no matter for the Z-axis or whatever showing in power mill, after successful creation of work-plane will tell the machine to do machining in specific side of component.

    If you have any doubt than send me the model you want to do machining with, I will clear it.!!

    PowerMILL hasn't changed anything. Look at the Z axis direction in SolidWorks. It's the same as the one in PowerMILL
