My students are creating drawings in google drawings and exporting as svg.  When I import the file to tinkercad, we only see vectors instead of the object.  We're using macbook w/ high sierra.

Thanks,

Welcome to the Affinity Forum Marianne, but what does this have to do with Affinity?

I created these: Untitled drawing copy.svg Untitled drawing.svg in Google Drawings, I removed the stroke and simply downloaded them as SVG files, I then imported them into Tinkercad.

There was no intervention by Affinity, in fact when I exported the same shapes to SVG from Affinity I got errors on importing them into tinkercad.

One very usual workflow of mine ( for making engraved game dices or other stuff for engraving/embossing or whatever) is svg -- > 3D, typically with Blender  (instead of tinkercad)). A general advice would be to take care of some things. Some people know it, u never know who do....:  Close always shapes (completely closed). Don't leave isolated lines/dots.  Some apps ( I don't know Google Drawings, at all) let you put two dots snapped together, visually can look melted,  but they are not really melted  (that's an open shape). Some apps can extrude a file from an open curve. Some wont.
