# Attempting to Extrude Imported SVG Curve [duplicate]

I am attempting to extrude a logo that has been imported from an SVG file. The SVG file was made in Adobe Illustrator. I deleted many extraneous layers (at this point, curves) upon import to have just a few main layers.

However, I then desired to extrude this, either through a solidify modifier, or the extrude option in the curves panel. Whichever I try, the result is the same: even if the thickness is 0.1, the shape will go off into infinity for the extrusion.

It appears that the vertices are fine and there are no duplicate/overlapping ones (but please check me), and so I have no idea what could be causing this! This is the first time I've ever tried importing an SVG like this to use, so any pointers are welcomed!

Your object is very very small and has a very large scale.

1. Select all your imported curves and apply scale with Ctrl + A > Scale
2. Join them all together with Ctrl + J (select them all and then make sure you click-select at least one last curve to make it the active object, so it will act as receiving curve other curves will be appended to)
3. Now enter edit mode in the new curve
4. Select all vertex and press Space Bar
5. Search for Set Curve Radius
6. Enter a value of 1.0and press enter

You should now be able to extrude successfully You can now separate all curves again into their original parts by entering edit mode, selecting each spline individually and pressing P Separate

Just a side note, when using curves always prefer the builtin extrusion method over solidify, it is more reliable and has better features like allowing non destructive beveling
