Thread Milling Multi Thread Tool want to Program With Multiple Steps

I hope I am missing something in the settings, but I have a multi thread  insert that I would like to step down and produce 8 threads per revolution.  Typically we would long hand it with the z step being a multiple of the pitch.  Not sure how to do it in Fusion.  It is intuitive enough to do the first 8 that way but then steps down the rest of the boss at the pitch.  Fusion file attached for reference.

It looked like this thread must have slipped by when I was out on the road. Sorry for the delay in reply....

 

At present, there really is no "clean" method of accomplishing this. The only one I've been able to get to work is this:
Multiple toolpaths, with math determining the start and stop heights of each pass. It's ugly, not gonna lie.....

Thanks for the feedback.  Probably simpler to long hand it at this time.
