I am brand new at this, but I have done some very basic 3D modeling in Sketchup and I am very experienced with Adobe Illustrator. I have a logo that I want to make into an emblem for my car. I just want the logo to be extruded up a bit and placed on a thin base (the base will cover the holes in my fender where the old emblem used to be).

The logo is in Illustrator now. I tried exporting the file from Illustrator as an SVG file and importing it into TInkercad, but it didn't work (it was a weird wire image that vaguely resembled my logo, but not even close). The logo has almost no straight lines, so tracing it in Sketchup isn't working very well at all. What is the best way to convert my drawing into a 2D image in a modeling program that I can then extrude the image up a few millimeters and add a base and be done?

It seems like this should be pretty simple...

Thanks!
