Explore the spline drawing tools and spline primitives by generating and adding some flowers to the landscape.We’ll also show how to download and use the CV-ArtSmart plug-in to make 3D objects from Illustrator artwork.

This video shows how to use the Pen and Sketch spline drawing tools, how to create spline primitives, and how to use the Extrude and Sweep generators with splines to create 3D polygon geometry. It also covers how to install and use the CV-ArtSmart plug-in to make 3D objects from Illustrator artwork.

For information on installing and using the CV-ArtSmart plug-in, see this video: CV-ArtSmart: Download and Install

For more details on using the Pen tool, see this video: What's New in R17: Spline Tools for Drawing, Sketching, Smoothing, and Combining Paths

For information on using the CV-Splines plug-ins which let you easily create objects from splines, see this video: CV-Splines Introduction
