Standard 8' 2x4 wood symbol

Recommended Posts

Hey there All


Probably an easy solution here but for the life of me I can't figure it out.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I am looking for some standard 3d symbols for wood products.  4', 6', 8', and 10' 2"x4", the same in 2x6, 1x6 and 1x1.  Or, if there isn't a library around, does anyone know how I would go abouts making these 3d symbols on my own?


Again, think there is an easy way of doing this, but I am probably overthinking it.

easiest would be to draw a rectangle with the actual dimensions for the lumber (remeber that a 2x4 is not 2"x4" when the end user gets them).  then extrude the length you need.
