Using LockBlocks to print Pif Paf with Turn

This 3D printing video was interesting:

This video demonstrates a typical use of my Lockblock connectors which are free to download from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27695.
I wanted to make a copy of Gregory Benedetti’s Pif Paf with Turn puzzle – http://puzzlewillbeplayed.com/553/PifPaf/Turn/ – but the four identical pieces are sufficiently complex that they would normally need support material turned on.. This can be rather messy for puzzle pieces, so one alternative is to bisect the pieces and then connect them back together after printing.
