Hi Brian, you might try exporting to AI format and using a 2D illustration program like Expression:

Those are usually highly oriented around working with a printed result, so there's stuff like the page boundaries and rulers shown on the screen.

If you set units to be inches and then uncheck "fit to page" when you do the AI export it should preserve the unit size of your objects in the generated AI file.
