Gary, could these plans be printed out on a 3D printer?

Assuming that it is a true wireframe mesh model, and not just a 3D drawing, it should be printable in 3D -- provided you get the .stl file and not the .pdf.

I don't know about your printer, but mine won't print something that won't fit on an 8-1/2 × 11 sheet of paper. My print bed is only 3.5" × 5.5" x 6.8". You may have to slice these into smaller pieces, unless you're thinking about sending it to Shapeways or someone like that for printing.

Try downloading a file and running it through your slicer software and see what happens.
