It might be better if you imported the gif file as is into your CAD system,
and then draw polylines around the shapes that you want to extrude. I say
this because tracing programs tend to generate a LOT of line segments. It
does not make good geometry to extrude from.

   I do not know if it is true, but I imagine that there are
scientists who, by following the paths of the so-called 
"cold" intellect -possibly without being aware of it- are plumbing the
depths of a mystery rather than searching for the solution to a problem...
