You don't have to be a 3D expert to create 3D objects in Illustrator. In this video, learn how to take a two-dimensional object and render a three-dimensional object from it.
- [Instructor] Illustrator gives us the ability…to create three-dimensional objects…from two-dimensional artwork.…Let me show you how it's done.…Now, I'm starting here with a couple of elements…that I've already drawn on my art board…and I'm gonna start by selecting this object right here…and my idea here is I wanna create…like an architectural ruler.…And the first 3D option I'm gonna show you…is what's called Extrude,…and basically, what that does is it takes an object…and extrudes it based on the shape.…
So to do this, we're gonna select this object,…go to the Effect menu, and choose 3D, Extrude and Bevel.…Now, for this example, I'm not gonna put a bevel on this…because I don't want that to happen,…but I am gonna turn the Preview on…and I'm gonna increase the Extrude depth to about 900 points…and that's gonna give me the architectural ruler…that I'm trying to create.…Now, up here, this square allows me…to spin this object in 3D space.…So I can spin this around, I can turn it,…and I can just adjust this however you want this to appear.…
