Ever wondered how a 2D drawing goes into 3D

Here is a fantastic Youtube video (sadly with no sound) that shows an experienced user of a 3D program overlaying lines, curves, and parametric surfaces (ie 3D graphed surfaces) in order to take a drawing and turn it into a model.

This is about as simple and pure as it gets in taking a design and beginning to build it. Such tools did not exist just a few years ago, and the fact that they are available to small businesses is nothing short of amazing.

Enjoy! We certainly do.
