Is there any setting to make a 2D object? Or at least an object that can only be seen from 2 angles. I tried making an object very skinny, but it did not work.

If you don't like the answers so far we need a bit more information. What did you try to achieve and what did not work? – stacker Sep 3 '14 at 20:51

You can also use curves and keep them as 2D:

Just make it infinity skinny ;)

⇧ ShiftA> Mesh > Plane will add a 2D plane.

Such a 2D object cannot be seen edge on:
