Machines I've seen, I can use the same MCS for the milling & turning  MCS Z is the same way for both.(along turning spindle centerline)

Note it has  to be an MCS created from the "turning" part template (not from a milling template file)

If you want some of the "milling only" stuff (avoidance, clearance, etc.) create a subsidiary one that is that stuff only.

Re: mill/turn

I would look at this sample:

Help > Manufacturing Tutorials > Open a sample part > cam_sample_mill_turn


To create a new setup, look at:

File New > Manufacturing > Mill Turn Express
