Problem with 4th 5th axis

I am a somewhat new user to Fusion 360. I have used SmartCam, Mastercam, APT, Compact II for several years. I am attempting to use the MFD module in Fusion 360. Not having any problems doing 3 axis but I am in need of a program for  a Haas VF2 with a TR 100 4th and 5th axis table. I am attaching a few images to help. I have modeled a test cube with holes at a 90 degrees rotating in the C axis. As I atempt to post my source I get the following error. Also as I toggle from one setup to the other, the machine rotates and no rotation on the C axis

"Multiple setups with different WCS settings have been selected.


Your post must be customized to handle your setup such that the tool is clear of parts and fixtures when moving between different work offsets (machine zeros).

You are likely using multiple setups to move around the part rather than using tool orientation. 


If you could upload your file here we can have a look and get the correct workflow for you. 

Goto File>Export>save as .f3z an attach to a reply here.


Also FYI its best to insert photos:


rather than attach them so they appear inline in your post.

You need to use tool orientation like this



You are getting collisions with the P-cool and the trunnion in simulation though




See attached file

It is still indexing, or rotating the House machining center as opposed to

I'm not quite sure what you mean?


do you have this selected in simulation?


you must also select simulate with machine
