How to print an image that is to large for a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper?

Some printer drivers will break the image up and print on multiple pages. Otherwise, I suppose you could split it up in your graphics program into smaller chunks and save each chunk by itself.

How big are you talking about? You could try Kinkos or other print shops. A blue-print shop could do it too.

Another option I just thought of is to mount a pen/marker or whatever on your CNC table and use the table as a plotter on a large sheet of paper. Just make a floating pen holder and mount it in your torch holder.
