I'm using Autodesk Inventor to create sheetmetal designs for cut out on a plasma cutter cnc table such as an electrical box. After laying out a sheet in the sketch, I'd like to import a vector based image like a DXF which might be a logo, clipart design, etc., resize it and use it in cutting the design out of the sheet metal.

What feature/function of Inventor will allow you to do this? Are you aware of any tutorials that show this type of functionality?

I found the answer here - Import AutoCad data into Sketch. It uses the ACAD button to import a DXF file or similar into a sketch.

I also found this video that covers it in depth. Autodesk Inventor Import
