Hello All,

Let me preface this post with a profound thank you. As a beginner-to-intermediate SW user, I make frequent reference to these forums and can usually resolve my issues without posting. So again, thank you to everyone for sharing your knowledge!


My question: I primarily use SW for weldment, machined component, and sheet metal design. As I gain competence, I'm tackling more and more complex sheet metal models. I have read through various tutorials and YouTube content, yet have been unable to get "good" or "fast" at transferring a company logo onto a part. In a perfect world, I'd like to convert a company logo into a sketch and save it, then reference it again and again for future parts, pasting it into the location on the part. For those of you with sheet metal/laser cutting experience, must the sketch of logo be fully defined? If so, how might one go about fully defining a complex, organic sketch shape quickly? Does anyone have any tips or go-to tutorials for instructing this process?

 

This Nike logo is a good example of the "complexity" of a logo I might wish to add to a sheet metal part for laser cutting.

Thank you in advance for any guidance or advice.
