    How do you make 2d shapes 3d?

    Selecting the Line tool exits Edit Mode. You must have used a hotkey you didn't tell us about, to draw a new line, while still in Edit mode, right? Well I can live without that feature for now.. I can always just have the object selected, and disable that Create New Object tickbox, to get the same result; your tutorials have been excellent so far, and this was only your first slip up! 😛

    at 5.02, when I click on the vertex and start to start drawing those additional lines, it wouldn't let me, as if the line tool is not selected (because it's not) but how did you manage to continue drawing after clicking on "vertex"

    Mine will only create shapes in the top and perspective views. Why can't I create a shape in the left view?

    How you make two separated shapes with unselected [Start New Shape]???

    For some reason when selecting the object to add a new line it wasnt bringing up all the other options like Geometry. I DID convert the object to Editable Spline by right clicking it and selecting that option like the tutorial showed but for some reason when adding the line I had to select the option to turn the Star to Editable Spline again. very weird but a minor glitch I think. hope it helps anyone else with this problem. NOTE: I am using 2010 version. Still an awesome tutorial

    Fantastic! Thank you very much!

    I used the render effect on the line and created walls on the line & tubes on the segment. Came back and did a boolean on it and created window & door openings. This makes architectural sketching with single spline really fast…Great video!!!

    My Spline isn't creating a new color shape with the "Start New Shape" cheked, neither creating a curve bezier point when dragging with mouse.

    Please help me! I have a problem, I have drawn two seperate lines, but they need to be connected to make it a face (to extrude for example). How do I connect or weld these lines precisely? Thanks in advance!

    You should get a new screen recorder -.-

  25. Elena Lenkova Avatar

    For me, it didn't work when I tried to drag – it just did some more points. The solution for that is to go into the "Drag Type" option and set it to "Bezier"!
