Can you use zx or zy paths in Solidworks CAM

I have been doing some experimenting with Solidworks Cam, and I understand that while it has 3 axis procedures, it really only works in 2.5 axes. Is there a way to configure it to run certain toolpaths in the zx or zy planes. I have some parts that I cannot change the orientation of to mill in those plans. Will I have to get CamWorks for functionality for this?
