Sep is correct as usual :)
My helmet was in 18 parts I think, my buddy did cut the parts and delivered me a nice puzzle :D

PS: In my Bucket Thread you can see my helmet, and should be able to make out the many parts it is composed of.

3d builder also has a split function for making pieces smaller. Also late to the party but you can also buy a cheap 3d print pen from GearBest for around $20 or so and use that to weld pieces together. Just did it on a non Mando helmet I was working on and couldn’t get the pieces apart after I messed up and had to use the pen to fix the mistake lol

In case of large objects, you just need to split the model in multiple parts (you might use  Meshmixer) and print them separately. Then, you'll only have to assemble them using acetone (for ABS) or glue (for PLA).
