trouble setting up tilting spindle 4 axis cnc router

Hi all,


I have a 5 x 10ft 3 axis CNC router with a 4th axis to tilt the spindle along the Y axis.

In fusion I tried to set it up, but I'm a bit lost. I configured it so that XYZ axes are linear and B axis is rotary on the head. When I make 3 axis toolpath it simulates it perfectly and even shows me the machine.

But as soon as I change the machining type to 5-axis (4-axis is not an available option) it breaks. I can't seem to figure out how to keep it just 4 axes..


Any help out here?


Many thanks!
