Looking for Rotary Contour Toolpath Selection

Hello,

 

I'm new to CAM and would like to smooth finish the surface of a cylindrical part, without stepping into the spiral cavities (see attached). From my googling, it looks like the toolpath that I want to use for is a "Rotary Contour", however I only see "Rotary" in my multi-axis toolpath selections. The support page says that this is where the toolpath should be (MILLING > MULTI-AXIS > ROTARY TOOLPATH).

 

https://help.autodesk.com/view/fusion360/ENU/?guid=MFG-MULTI-AXIS-ROTARY-CONTOUR-STEPS

 

I've tried using just the "rotary" toolpath but it doesn't allow me to select an inner diameter boundary, only the rotary axis. I think the "rotary contour" is what I'm looking for, I just don't see the option. Please let me know what I might be missing.

 

Thank you.

The toolpaths are currently in preview and need turned on in preferences:

And just a quick comment to anyone else reading this thread (at present or in the future); Rotary Contour and Pocket are going to be Machining Extension capabilities once they mature enough for the general public. As of now (2/16/23) they are in public preview stage where all commercial/edu/Startup users have access  to it
