2D to 3D Conversion Overview
You can convert 2D sketches into 3D models.
The 2D sketch can be an imported drawing, or it can be a sketch constructed
in SolidWorks. In either case, it must be a single sketch in a part document.
Even though the sketch can be an imported drawing, it must be imported
into a sketch in a part document. You can copy and paste the drawing from
a drawing document, or you can import the drawing directly into a 2D sketch
in a part document.
The conversion procedure is generally as follows:
In a part document, import a drawing into a sketch or
construct a new sketch.
