Is it possible to crop tool paths?

I’m working on a project that exceeds my Y-axis travel. After looking at a bunch of videos, and a couple write-ups, I couldn’t find any good description of tiling in Easel. My thought is that I can create my 8"x24" project, then duplicate workpieces with different Y-axis offsets. I’ve seen this in V-carve, and I plan to use index holes to properly align my workpiece.

The issue is that Easel generates a toolpath for the entire 8x24 project. So I’m looking for a way to crop either the artwork or the toolpath to just the ~10" working area.

Make a rectangle that covers what you want to ignore and set the carve depth to zero.

Easel dont support tiling but you can work around it like Neil described.

To secure position you would need something to align it with, a bump stop / ruler and pencil or alignment holes/pins.
