    Images can be inserted into CAD (Solidworks, and I presume others) and used to 'trace' sketches and create geometry over the top of. Here's an example of a joke 'warning' icon created using this technique.

    It's usually not perfect, but often 'close enough' for what we're using it for.

    There may be other ways to accomplish what you're after that I'm not familiar with as well.
