How to convert Grease pencil 2D drawings to 3D mesh in Blender?
Watch this quick tutorial and learn how!
These are very simple examples, but Iâ€™m sure this will come in handy, endless possibilities!
You can set Shade Smooth & and in Object Data properties / Normals turn on Auto smooth to get smoother results after converting.
Don’t forget to test other great modifiers, like displace / bevel etc 🙂
Here’s some ideas where converting to 3D could come in handy
– Import SVG to GP to 3D (2.93+)
– Trace image to GP to 3D (2.91+)
– Set a background image and trace stuff by hand in GP to 3D
– Add details to your excisting mesh first using GP (draw on surface) to 3D
Converting excisting GP animations don’t work with this technique though.
You also might have to tweak/smooth more in edit mode to get better results.
You can also try path / polygon curve.
