I'm nearing the end of my first CNC router build. During this time I've been playing around with Fussin360 (hobby license).

My router is 4x4ft. and my need is to process 4x8ft. What 360 is missing is a tile feature.

Does anyone know how to tile in Fussion360? Or is there a better freeware or inexpensive package that works nicely with LinuxCNC?

You could look at sheetcam. It supports routers.

Is this a standalone or integrated CAM package/plugin. I did not see it anywhere under LinuxCNC. :(

There are, in no particular order:
NativeCAM, can be added to Linuxcnc so it is integrated into it, can do tiles.
PlasmaC has something similar, included with Linuxcnc.
Inkscape has almost everything for 2D and 2.5D, including tiles, can output ready for use gcode with the included gcodetools.
Freecad has CAM included in new versions.
BlenderCAM has very powerful CAM that can do 5 axis, as per the internet, i never got to use it.
SheetCam has a free version for Linux that is very usable, paid version is worth every penny.

To install Inkscape and Freecad on Linux:
sudo apt install freecad inkscape
