Insert a Company Logo Into a Drawing – SolidWorks Tutorial

A lot of companies like to have the company logo on their blueprints. The first step is to prepare your company logo. SolidWorks allows you to insert the following image types into a drawing: .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .tif, .wmf, .png, and .psd. Once your logo is ready to go, all you have to do is use the Sketch Picture command on the “Sketch” toolbar to easily insert your image file into a drawing.

To do this, open the drawing that you want to insert your picture in.

Then, pull down the “Insert” menu and pick Picture, or pick Sketch Picture from the “Sketch” toolbar.

In the Open dialog box, browse to an image file, then click Open.

Note that the inserted image is inserted in the lower left corner of the drawing, the (0,0) position. You can just drag and resize the images in the graphics area to any desired location.

In the Sketch Picture PropertyManager, pick the position, size, rotation, and transparency settings of your choice, and then, click the green OK check mark.
