Hi, I want to engrave the company logo on my SOLIDWORKS part. What would be the easiest way to achieve this. I am aware of the text feature but I believe that would not work.. Here's the Logo.
There are lots of options. These are listed in the order I would attempt them.
1. Get your marketing department or whoever created the logo to export the image as vector file such as DXF/DWG.
2. Use a free web-based image to DXF conversion utility to convert the logo to DXF, then use that to create a sketch in your part. One conversion utility I've used in the past is Convert JPG to DXF (Online & Free) — Convertio but there are lots of others.
3. Start a new part, start a sketch, insert the image as a sketch picture, and use the Autotrace add-in to convert the image to sketch geometry.
4. Insert the image in an AutoCAD drawing and trace over it manually and save it as DXF/DWG.
Once you've got vector geometry you should be able to easily create a cut feature or whatever you want with it, but let us know if you need help with that.
If you'll use this logo for more parts in the future, I think you should create a sketch of this logo and save it as a template for future use
This is what I would do...
Make a new rectangle part and add the picture to one of the surfaces, then insert the part into a new assembly and then insert a new part and in that new part add a traced sketch of the logo. If you do this right, you can make multiple configurations and each configuration the part would be scaled to the exact size required...
Just add to John idea - you can create a block (which you can scale to any size you want or explode the block to adj. dim) and insert into you part each time you want to add that logo
yes this is the way to go invest some time in making this a blockthen u can make it any size u want
making the initial block using the sktech picture and the just draw over it Note: make shure u give the block dimensions so it wil become defined to the origin
this is important for blocks
