I don’t know about fusion but you can simply make the c axis an axis. We don’t know or care what your doing with the motors. The issue is we do not have the tools to make a Cartesian coordinate system from the c and x axis. We know how to do it we just have not done it because not enough people need it.
Fixing problems one post at a time ;)

You may be able to get away with using one of the fanuc post processors to utilize the milling capabilities.

If you're using a lathe, try the fanuc turning.
