Chopper: Partitioning Large Models into Smaller 3D Printable Parts

Oh man that would be very useful for me. For one of my models I actually hand made all the seams and joining points, very time consuming.

And for me, no, that is not something I would use at this time. The reason being that printing large scale items is just too cost prohibitive at the moment. That chair in the example would likely cost many hundreds of dollars based on what I've seen of lampshades and like here. Until the cost of printing large items comes down to a reasonable level I'll just have to stick to jewellery and mini desk "sculptures".
