Are you wanting just the outline shape to cut out a piece of metal or want to get a line type drawing so you can do something like a metal rod -neon sign wire figure?

I don't know what type of drawing apps you have that can edit the picture on the ipad, just do an overlay layer and trace/path the outline or select the object to create a mask. You can then somehow print that out to scale Maybe try pixlr or Sketchbook express, from our good friends at Autodesk. Good luck.

The easiest thing to do is just print it out the picture and enlarge it on a copy machine or through the printer to size. Trace the cut out onto your metal.
