    I don't really understand your question but I think you are missing some concepts.

    Fusion 360 generates Gcode according to the post processor setting. It is NOT a controller.

    PlanetCNC and Mach3 interpret the Gcode and make the machine move. They are controllers.

    So to 'make Fusion compatible' you only have to select the correct post processor for the controller you are using.
