Yes - a cut operation across a boundary is something we will be trying to avoid in the tool path selection.
While I aim for 1M feed every time, the nature of one long cut might mean , that i Feed 500mm.  This sort of custom feeding, I am still  considering I should switch to MACH4.   

I also will have a  blank space  on workpiece  - so first cut is 10mm, next one might be 1750mm   , so instead of regular 1000mm tiles, it could be move to something else, in order to be faster.

I see an investment in the CAM toolpath routing, its containment to 1000mm sections and nesting into suitable sublengths. I see reasonable support in Fusion for this, but I have to consider other packages too.   Perhaps this is where good experience of post processor will come in.

Thanks for bearing with me, this is relatively new to me, but hope to be putting this into practice in next month.
