Joints between elements

Hi! I am wondering if one could please help me. I need to 3d print a physical model this week. I wanted to add the (Male - Female) joints between the bricks like in the image below. I have red that Kangaroo 2 Checkerboard is used for this task of adding the joints in the project below, but I am not very familiar with it. I was wondering if one had experience with this before? If one could please help me with this? I have attached the 3d model and the gh code below. (NGon) plugin is used along with (OpenNest). Many thanks!

Here is the example file.

It is only geometry that could be 3D printed while real fabrication methods require much different cutting strategy.

We did this version old time ago using solid lumber:
