Export Sketch into Mastercam MX5

Hey everyone,


I am working on a project where I traced over a picture, I used SW to perform the trace because my Mastercam experience is limited. The trace is nothing more than a sketch. I want to take this sketch and import it into Mastercam (I have MX5) so I can use a VMM to engrave into a piece of stock.


I am having trouble exporting out of SW. I have tried Parasolid (.x_t), .stl, and IGES. SW says there is no geometry to export, I am assuming because I have not created a solid.


Any suggestion on how to go about exporting the sketch so I can import into Mastercam?


Any suggestions to improve the overall process?


I have included a screengrab of the sketch. I will add a picture of the SW screen in a little bit.


Thank you for any help.
