So this is printed as a single piece? Could this be split into two files (base+blade)? That way, a single blade could be made as long as the print bed.

Yes, I printed this all at once with the blades already inserted in the hub. I hadn't separated the parts because, with this design, there is no way to install the blades after the hub is printed.

Here are stl files for a single blade and a hub if you want to play with it. If you're familiar with FreeCAD, you can use the FreeCAD file (included in the project files) to export individual pieces or make modifications.

Have fun.
