3+1 Axis Okuma Milling- Post Processor B Axis Problem



I'm programming a square part that is identical at 0 and 180, and 90 and 270. To program this in fusion I used circular patterns for the identical sides, and two WCS at 0 and 90. When I run the simulation it looks correct, but when I check the post, there is only B positions at 0 and 180. 


Can I solve this within fusion or do I need to modify the post? Machine is Okuma MB-8000H and using Okuma post processor. All of the settings for the machine are default from the Fusion 360 library.

Solved my own problem. 


Had to keep the work offset the same and change the tool orientation for the sides. Now I need to figure out why the post is outputting -90° instead of 270°..

If the part is truly identical, you could also just program up one side completely and then put it into a Pattern > Rotation to automatically duplicate it across a centerline
