Slicing and tiling a model

Postby gadget-evilusions » Tue Jun 05, 2018 10:08 pm

I am making a foam sculpture on my 4 x 8 machine that is 8 x 8 and 12" thick using 2" thick foam.

I have figured out how to slice a model and run those, but is there a way to tile a model into multiple sheets. For example, taking this 8' x 8' x 12" model and running it from 12 sheets, 6 4 x 8 for half 1, and 6 4 x 8 for half 2.

Look at the Tiling function or the Nesting function depending on how you're planning on laying out the sheets.
