I've done this two ways.
First way is to make two separate FC programs, one using fixture offset 1, the other using fixture offset two, then when saving post, start the event numbering of the second one at the end of the first one. In my machines I can then just upload one after the other, then I just go in and change the m30 at the end of the first program into an m6. then it runs as one big program....

Second way is to use multiple setups in FC (manufacturing>setups) With this method I don't have to worry about event numbering or combining programs, You can have a different zero for each setup if you want, and if you put the features from each setup in a separate layer, you can view them one setup at a time. (just so it doesn't look so cluttered, with features from different setups overlapping)
