Is it possible to import a black and white image and use it to make a sketch?

Yes, I use this technique frequently.


But because you specify black and white I suspect your question is really,

Can Inventor Fusion automatically convert a bitmap image of line art into a vectorized sketch?"


The answer to that is no.  You must use the image as reference to create your sketch yourself.


Select Place Canvas on the Sketch tab.

I recommend you create a new sketch for your vector geometry.
