Create Turning Paths for 5 axis lathe

Has anyone used Fusion 360 to create code for a swiss style CNC lathe (Tsugami BO-205 III)?  I am using a basic program now (Tsugami Abile Software) but since I have Fusion 360 I wondered if it will work in this environment?  Thanks!

It's technically doable, just a matter of how much you're looking to invest, both in time and post edits.

If you're trying to do multi-channel, that's not going to happen, as we do not have support for that yet, nor do we have lathe simulation (collision avoidance and the like)

I'm using Fusion to run my Nomura Swiss with a Mits M80 control. I use a ton of Pass Throughs to handle the part transfer operations and wait codes. I keep a template stored and delete anything I end up not using.
