    Did you read the part "pushed an update"?

    Fusion doesn't let me select to not do an update, it gets updated when I log in or I dont get logged in.

    Just make a copy of the paper drawing for the machinist. If they know what they are doing they can handle the rest.

    So just a thought here.. You could leave that M01 in the program and just turn off the switch on the machine control. With the switch off the machine will ignore it and keep on running the program....

    Don't bother with Fusion 360. The lathe side is very weak right now, and I would think it would drive you insane trying to program a y axis live tool lathe on it.
