"Import” shapes/text from .svg to avoid tracing

Hello everyone, Im creating a 3d printed letters w/led, I dont really like to trace sketches, so I use the following work-flow to do it.

First, I use InkScape to create a .svg file, write a text (and convert it to path) or import a image (trace bitmap & convert it to path)

once I created a .svg file, the next step is to import it as geometry to create a .iges file using export command on FreeCad

Open the .iges file on Shapr3D, and start working on what you need

I get all the way to the last step but while importing the progress circle gets to half way and stops. Any suggestions? THANK YOU!

Got the help I needed from support! Thank you!

Before exporting the iges file from free cad select your objects and extrude them a little bit so they get imported as a 3D model

That’s really cool! Good job!

Great! I will try that. With what I’m paying monthly, text should already be an option at this point.
