I am a newbie with Blender (Version 2.83) on Windows 10. I want to do one simple job: import a SVG file and scale it in Blender. I downloaded a football image in SVG file format, its name is like: C:\Temp\Brzauca01.svg Now, I open Blender 2.83 and delete the default image, then I import the football SVG file, but I can't see it from Blender. So I tried the following to scale the SVG image. I typed S, then 5 trying to make it as 5 times as its original size, but I can't see any visual effect. You can see the Blender IDE after I imported SVG file and after I typed S, 5 By the way, another picture you can see that I can use InkScape 1.0 to show the Brzauca01.svg, it is a football image in SVG format. Please advice what I should do to show the visual effect for scaling a SVG file.Blender IDE show SVG file after scale Football SVG file shown in InkScape 1.0

  • $\begingroup$ Was the element converted to paths? Blender cannot import Raster Images in a SVG container. Read: blender.stackexchange.com/a/23171/92768. If you don't want to deal with vector graphics then export the image as PNG from Inkscape and import it using the "Import Images as Plane" addon. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, thanks for your advice, I found the SVG file is not correct, it came without path information. So I found another one, now, it works. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? Why can't I import a SVG file from Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape? $\endgroup$
