Extruded Polygon Examples

To create objests like those shown above you need to do three main things:

Step 1: Open the image you want to use as a bas-relief on the surface of the extruded polygon. Use the "File" menu for that, or drag the image into the main window of PhotoToMesh, or use copy/paste from your paint program to PhotoToMesh.

Step 2: Select "Extruded Polygon" in the "Solid Shape" combo box:

Choosing the solid shape

Step 3: Choose how many sides you want (from 3 to 8) by clicking on the "Other Settings..." and getting this dialog:

The other settings, like size of the object and smoothing of the image are explained on other help pages.
