Hi, yes I noticed that just now. I didn't have the printer yet when I made this, so I didn't understand slicing. I just successfully printed this item, it took 10.5 hours. It didn't need to be split, it just needs supports for the turret. I'll put the full model up here when I get home, I'm just away from my main machine right now and that's where the model is.

Printer finally arrived, this is how I printed this item.
I used rafts and supports, but you only need support. I used a leatherman to remove the supports, be very careful around the turret, use a pair of scissors to cut the supports beneath the barrel before you start to pull it away with the leatherman. You can try to re-orient it if you'd like.
My image shows it printed at .1mm on a makerbot replicator 2. PLA is the natural color that came with it, I sprayed it with a developer I use with my scanner so the detail sticks out, it didn't come out very well in clear. The leatherman is in one pic to see the scale.
