View Full Version : 2D line to 3D object

Mar 25, 2012, 01:40 PM
Hi guys.

I have a little project (am making something!).

Its a plastic hook and I can make it myself, but I really want a 3D object of it. I am useless with these 3D apps so I am asking for a bit of advice.

I have a side on line drawing to scale and want to turn it into a 3D model. Whats the easiest way to do this? I was hoping to find a way to import it into a 3D program and kinda stretch it ? I would also want to give the corners a slight rounding to them as I will be doing that to the finished hook.

I am attaching the side on view if that helps visualise what I am trying to do.

any suggestions please guys n gals?
