# Splitting a big document into several output PDF files [duplicate]

My document structure has:

• 1 file with preface;
• 12 individual .tex files representing chapters

Each chapter has lots of figures (2D and 3D) so each .pdf has about 250Mb.

Using the \include command I was able (more or less) to manage the compilation step, but for the final print step I'd like to have multiple .pdf, not a single huge .pdf.

Is there a way I can do this?
