Update business card design with actual martini glass diagram

completed by: Sharan Narayan

mentors: Andrei

This is a follow-on to two other GCI tasks:

The first task produced an interesting business card design.  The second created an actual BRL-CAD geometry model that was depicted in the business card.

This task involves wrapping it all up into a final design.  You'll take the business card design and take the fake cup model with fake dimensions and replace it with the real cup model with proportional dimensions.

Dimensions: You can do this manually (e.g., with a ruler in Photoshop or estimate with a grid line overlay) or calculate actual dimensions using BRL-CAD tools such as nirt or the integrated rules/gridlines.  Make the overall height of the cup be about 170mm (6.75") and all other measurements proportional.

Lines: The rendered screenshot submitted in the second task will be much too thin.  You'll need to thicken them up in a photo editor or regenerate the image in mged, setting the wireframe line thickness with the rset command.

The lines and dimensions need to seamless match the card design, yet be based (proportionally) on this new model.

Submit updated design files with updated layers and dimension information.
