  1. Okay, i managed to do what i want from what you guys told me thanks alot! I made a quick video tutorial so im gonna put it here just incase someone has the same problem in the future
  2. oh wow! yeah thats pretty much exactly what im looking to do, thanks for the tips!
  3. Oh wow, ill try that, it sounds like exactly what i was looking for thank you! I will post back if i have any more issues
  4. Thanks for replying quickly Oh okay, so how would i go about making lines into a solid shape to extrude (say im at the point where i've got the lines, whats the option called or where would i be looking for to make it into one shape?). I think i did it once by accident (though ive been searching for hours now and cant find it), it gave me a kind of paint bucket and it put a fill inside the shape i made and made it whole, though i didn't try extruding it... main thing is it needs to be extrudable. Its the BOSCH logo btw, its not the text that im so much worried about, as i could probably find a similar font anyway and do the truetype to polyline as you mentioned just now, its the circle part of the logo that im looking to include also thats the main issue... http://www.appliancegallery.com.au/media/28-Bosch.jpg [*the one i have has been edited so its just a black logo on a transparent/white background]
  5. Hey im a student who has just started using Vectorworks this semester (i have 2011 and i am running it on Mac version 10.6.7 if thats any consolation...) anyway im creating a 3d kitchen and i have made a rangehood so thats all fine, my problem is that i need to include the logo and it needs to be slightly extruded so i can get a few more marks. Basically ive tried doing it through importing a transparent .png but it just comes up wrong (blacking in parts that dont actually exist), Ive tried saving the logo through Illustrator as an .eps which turns up fine when i import it but i dont know how to make it into something i can extrude... Ive saved it through illustrator as an Autocad file (.dwg - i go import>single DWG file>inside the dialogue box that comes up i select 'convert objects to: All 3d>click OK>click Done) which comes up how i want it but i dont know the next steps to take to make it so its extrudable, it just refuses... so i messed around a bit and converted it through using the option in Modify>convert>Convert to 3D polys - which after i apple+u (ungroup) it seems to have made it into a bunch of lines... but i can work out how to make that into a shape i can extrude???? could responses have directions in them if possible as i am still new to to this program and will probabally get lost Thanks
