The picture attachment is a SVG file which I uploaded in PNG format.

The detail of the SVG is really good and my vinyl plotter is able to sketch it.

I would like to know how one converts a sketch such as the picture into an SVG file.

Use a graphic program's vector tracing algorithm (this generally requires lots of clean-up afterwards), hand trace/recreate it yourself with vector graphic program of choice (takes time but generally provides the best results), or use a service like http://vectormagic.com/home

    so you basically use the trace as an outline and draw in the detail yourself. I see thanks for your help :) Jun 22, 2015 at 0:06
