Blender will not import my svg image. I'm using inkscape and I made sure to use plain svg.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome to the site =) Please provide more information about your problem, preferably with some screenshots. What's happening when you try to import? $\endgroup$ – Einar Feb 22 '15 at 1:37

The SVG format can contain three types of graphic objects: vector graphics, raster graphics (bitmap images), and text. Blender's SVG importer can only deal with vectors (paths). So make sure you've traced your images as paths otherwise they will not load in Blender. In Inkscape use main menu -> path -> trace bitmap or press shift+alt+b

  • $\begingroup$ I figured out how to trace the bit map and get it into blender. But thanks for answering. $\endgroup$ – Felix Seanor Feb 23 '15 at 19:36
