Splitting part to produce separate patterns

I have to make a 2mm thick stainless steel gutter which tapers down its full length, it is 14982mm long and split into 5 parts (4 @2900 & 1 @ 3382mm long). I would like to produce separate part drawings for each section but am not sure of the best way to do this.

So far I have drawn the one end section on a plane, I then inserted another plane at 14982 from the first and drew the other end section on this. I then used lofted bends to produce the whole gutter length. This seems to have worked but what I can't seem to do is split it into the individual sections that I require and then to produce a pattern for each of them. I have inserted planes at the intended joint lines but can't work out what to do next.

Any help would be appreciated as I may be going about the whole thing the wrong way.
