in this video, iâ€™ll create a 3d model froma 2d design. iâ€™ll start with this 2d drawing, showingthe top, front, and right side views of a coffee mug.before i get started, iâ€™ll change to the 3d modeling workspace. this gives me easyaccess to the most commonly used 3d modeling tools. now i have the solid, surface, andmesh tabs available on the ribbon. because 3d objects are easier to create inan isometric view, iâ€™ll select southwest isometric from the viewport label menus. icould also click the corner of the viewcube tool.iâ€™ll extrude the 2d base of the mug, giving it a height of 3.8 to create a 3d cylinderfor the body of the mug.
now iâ€™ll create a circle and give it a radiusof 1.5. next, iâ€™ll use the presspull command tocreate the interior of the mug, giving it a depth of 3.5.iâ€™ll select 3dalign, select the 2d handle, and press enter. iâ€™m going to copy and alignthe 2d handle to the 3d mug. iâ€™ll select two base points along the centerline of the 2d mug. iâ€™ll press enter to continue through the third base point.now iâ€™ll select two destination points along the center line of the 3d mug to rotate thehandle. for the third destination point, iâ€™ll use the quadrant object snap to locate thehandle to the mug. to complete the handle, iâ€™ll select sweepto sweep the profile of the handle along the
2d path.to get a better idea of how the mug will look, iâ€™ll select the conceptual visual stylefrom the viewport label menus. and finally, iâ€™ll hold down the shift keyand mouse wheel button while moving the mouse to orbit around the 3d mug.
