Toolpath tiling will not work. You would have to accurately locate x0 y0 in the correct spot on the job for each toolpath to start from. It's designed for you to move the material to a new position so you can carve larger pieces than your table can support.
The problem with tape splitting on a Shark machine is maintaining your home position after things are shut down. The Shark does not have a machine home position, and no way to accurately save a home position (no limit switches to calibrate from).

The next day when I fired back up I would just hit the xyz zero buttons on mach before moving the machine. I also had no limit or home switches on my machine.
