I was asked about doing a more complex diagram ,so I picked a herron full size plan and did a trace into a *.dxf file
It did require some editing as I was a bit rushed

The bird looks almost alive. Great paint job and 3D modeling.

Haha! You guys need to watch the video. The first picture is a beautifully (and skillfully!!) hand carved and painted Blue Heron.

The technique he is trying to show is digitizing a printed image so the vectors can be engraved with a cnc spindle, plasma, or laser.
