In this case, you have a difference of cylinders intersected by some 
planes. Each block may end up with a bounding box large enough to 
contain the whole outer cylinder. This is a case where manually bounding 
with a tight box or a sphere can help.

Do a test with only a small subset of the blocks, using only the 
difference and intersection, where each part is paired with a box made 
from the max_extent() and min_extent() for that block.
If there is much unused space, then, you may try using some manual bounding.

This may be your critical part :
	plane {+x, -Muns_gap_width rotate +y * Muns_slice_angle/2}
	plane {-x, -Muns_gap_width rotate -y * Muns_slice_angle/2}
		cylinder{-y*(1/2 -Muns_gap_width),+y*(1/2-Muns_gap_width),Muns_param_C 
+ (1/2 - Muns_gap_width)}
		cylinder{-y*(1/2),+y*(1/2),Muns_param_C -(1/2 -Muns_gap_width)}
	translate	+y * Muns_param_V
	rotate		+y * Muns_param_h
