    Printed image from program:

    cropped detail from image above:

    Full print was printed at 70cm by 100cm from a pdf file generated at 1400px by 2000px with 650 objects drawn, (and a couple other slight modifications). Significantly, the print differs from the screen version because enlarging the size of the canvas in which the program draws makes its tendency to create "clumping" more apparent.
    You can also see in the closeup that everything is drawn with very thin lines. Since the base program draws everything in a series of points, using lines instead of points was a sensical extension that also makes overlapping more apparent.
