phew, the lit. is really awkward (and piao2 is a gourd "dipper")... anyone has an idea here?
I mainly copied from:
依樣畫葫蘆 依样画葫芦 [yi1 yang4 hua4 hu2 lu5] /lit. to draw a gourd from the model (idiom)/fig. to copy sth mechanically without attempt at originality/

- 新浪微博无法将国外的社交网站照葫芦画瓢似地全盘搬到国内,很多东西在政治上行不通。
- 一旦设计完成,生产汽车就仅仅是照葫芦画瓢了。
