That's really great. Thank you.

However, I need a close up. The idea is that I can draw it in a CAD program, print it, cut it out, and glue it to the figure.

That's the plan, anyway.

Download the picture I posted then edit it to whatever size you need. I tested it and it holds up very well.

Here's a picture of it at 7000 by 22000
