best practice for half index lathe tools on simulation

I am wondering what the best method would be to set up a half index lathe tool. The device has 4 pockets. Graphically it all looks ok, but I get an error "Tool orientation does not match current worspace". It seems I have to define these half index stations in the machine model, but then I would have to import a device for a half index station and a device for a regular station. Both devices would have the same solid, but different mounting junchtions. Is there a better way of doing this?
