Create a sketch on the plane you want the logo on. Import logo jpeg (tools-Sketch tools-sketch picture) -- scale logo to size required and position in place -- you will have to retrace logo using jpeg as guide -- then cut extrude the sketch from model. check out the colt logo

OK Don't use autotrace create the shapes using splines you will get a nice smooth logo-- the fewr the spline pionts the smoother the curve

Thank you for the help. i did it succesfully by using Autotrace . but the problem now is that the tracing is not that smooth and the logo sketch have too much corners(edges) in it.
