Hi, does anyone one know of a way to convert an EPS to a 3d model format? I know you can import an EPS into Blender as paths, but I want to create a model from a filled colour EPS?

Import the paths into Blender and then extrude.

Hi, thanks I have tried that with mixed results on the mesh, also none of the segment colours come across from the EPS?

Rather than EPS, converting to DXF might open up a few more options.

Hi, thanks DXF gave better results but still no colour for each segment, just a single color mesh.

What are you using to create the EPS?

<edit> Guess it's Illustrator from your topic heading. Which version?

Exporting from Illustrator CS4 as DXF (R13/L95) and importing into Truespace 6.5 seems to retain materials - I believe Truespace can be downloaded for free now after it was bought and then canned by Microsoft...

Did you have any luck with this?
