can the side view of the rocket be printed a full scale ?

just the side view no marking patterns or fin templates

I have a large format plotter and want to print the side view of the rocket out at full size

Thanks !

I don't really know how the software or UI of a plotter...
Maybe you can export it to PDF as normal and open that in Photoshop then crop out the side view. Would be easier to start a new file the length of your rocket. A lot of work but without a working knowledge of the plotter, its all I got.

the plotter is a HP Designjet 800ps
Yep I could cut and paste the side view image and then figure what the scale up percent will be and plot that way

thanks
