I have very limited knowledge but I have used inkscape (freeware) to trace a screenshot etc to create a .svg file. You can then import into your modelling software (I use fusion360) and use it like a normal sketch to extruder/cut the design.
Or you can import an image to fusion as a canvas and sketch splines over the top of it.
