Default 120" panel on 96" machine

I have a stinger lll and I need to make a straight cut the whole length of a 10ft panel. Is this possible? Can I make an 8ft cut and slide the panel down, reposition, and finish the cut? I guess my question is can it be done accurately?

Thanks

Vectric toolpath tiling does this.

I've used the tilling process on some molding and it did a great job.

I'm guessing if your cutting a straight cut you could setup a straight edge on your machine and a good X,Y location and just cut it and move it down and cut the remainder.
Even if you use the tilling feature you need to have the ability to move the pieces down and keep them straight and use the same X,Y location as a starting point.

The tiling feature is great,,you just need to make sure you have everything lined up and register well.
I recently ran some 10' lengths on my 8' bed with no issues.
