Step 2: slice it up and get it ready for printing

Finally the fun began... Since I only have access to a 4.7" x 4.7" printer, I had to carefully chop up my 3D model into smaller pieces while preserving my non-manifoldness and the structure of the model so it could be easily re-assembled after printing. So not only would I get an awesome 3d printed dock but a nice fun puzzle to put together right after the printing. This wouldn't be included if I had access to a larger printer, but A) those printers are on the order of 10x the price of my printer, and B) it actually lends itself to be molded into several parts anyways, so breaking it down was counter intuitive.
