Model Orientation

I've been using FreeCAD to do most of my modeling. I decided to try Fusion 360, the hobbyist form. I'm working my way through that. 

I have a orientation problem. It's not killer, but it irks me. If I create a FreeCAD model on the  XY plane, it looks that way when I import the STL into PrusaSlicer. If I do that with Fusion 360, I get a model imported on it's side. I've tried both export as stl and 3MF. They both come in on their side. It only takes a second to orient it correctly using Place on Face in PrusaSlicer. But it irks me 😕 

Am I making an error in Fusion, PrusaSlicer, both, or none???

tnx,

Gerry

RE:

Don't use fusion 360 but in Blender on the export dialog there are options for which axis to use for output.  Check through F360 for anything similar.  I take it you googled this already ?

For example https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-design-validate/stl-exported-sideways/td-p/6718459   first hit on a search.

Thanks. That did it. I'm not sure why you would want Y-up.
