I am trying to insert my company LOGO into a solid works part for engraving, but it doesn’t seams to work.
Can you please help me?

Can you tell us how you are trying to do this? Maybe attach a model for us to dissect. (Look for the browse button below the text entry box to attach a model, preferably zipped up) If you have a sketch of the logo you should be able to use the emboss/deboss function to accomplish this.
I have tried to do it as in the tutorial.
The Logo is in JPEG format. Open sketch, insert Sketch picture, position it in the middle of the part.
As per tutorial, or help file, at this point I was suppose to see the blue arrow to take me to the second page for tracing. It says that I have to have activated the “autotrace feature” which I cant find.
SO here is my main problem.
Is there another way of doing this? If not, can you please tell me how to activate this autotrace feature?
The auto trace feature is a addin you need to activate. Tools > Add-ins and select from the list. Then you need to double click the jpg to activate the function and you will then see the ‘blue arrow’. I warn you though you may not get the results you need from the auto trace it is a bit kludgey. Sometimes it is better to just trace the jpg by hand using the sketch tools
Thanks, I found it, and you are right. It is not to much help.
In the past I have had great success just tracing logos with a sketch. Hope your logo is not too complex….
I know it looks like I am having a conversation with myself but I am moving comments from one threas to another to keep things neat.
For those interested here is how we accomplished the task:
1. Just made a sketch to trace the picture
2. Traced the Sun with two arcs
3. Made 2 splines for the wave
4. CTRL select both splines and then while still holding CTRL clicked on and dragged the spline entities to make a copy and placed it on the second wave
5. Used the text sketch function while still in the sketch Unchecked ‘use document font’ anc clicked the ‘font’ button
6. Found a close font to the text and resized in the dialog
7. Right clicked the sketch pictue in the feature manager and suppressed
8. Closed out of the sketch
9. Clicked on Insert-Features-Wrap
10. chose the sketch and the face
11. Checked the scribe function in Wrap.
I used Wrap instead of splitlines as it will allow for multiple profiles FYI
Thanks Ben for your help. I think U are a kind of SolidWorks GURU.,
I just hoped that there is a easier way of doing this.
I know you don’t use this feature every day, but probably Solidworks should include it in a next version.
Thanks one more time for your help. Everything sound easy if you know what you are doing.
