Hi,
I have manipulated a rather complex image in illustrator, I have three layers that I would like to be able to create a 3D profile within Rhino creating a surface. I think it is too complex for the Heightfield command (well it doesn’t seem to work?) and was wondering if there was another quick way…?

Did you read the help file for the Heightfield command?

The Heightfield command creates a NURBS surface or mesh based on grayscale values of the colors in an image file.

I’m not saying that’s the best way to go - you’ll get better answers if you provide more information and upload a file.

Thank you!! I missed the upload tab… I have added… could I use Heightfield?

I think I have done it… I just upped the sample points… it told me it may crash… but it survived!!
