Image to 3D with ViaCAD and Abobe Illustrator

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

I’m a big enthusiast for creating photo rendered images from 3D models.  However, when it comes to creating 2D images without a 3D model it’s tough to beat Adobe PhotoShop(TM) and Illustrator(TM).  In this tip we show how you can use Adobe Illustrator to convert a 2D image into something ViaCAD can convert into 3D solids.  Our example will convert the Shark FX logo created with PhotoShop into a 3D model suitable for rendering or 3D printing.  Click the image below to watch a video demonstration of this interesting workflow.
