So I drew a teardrop-shaped bezier curve and converted it to a mesh using Object -> Convert to -> Mesh from Curve/Meta/Surf/Text. A new mesh object appeared in my collection, but when I select it and go into Edit mode, Mesh -> Extrude has no options. Likewise, pressing ALTE just brings up a blank menu labeled "Extrude". What am I doing wrong here?

You can find my workflow here.

  • $\begingroup$ It all worked fine here, except when I enter edit mode but the mesh is not select and the menu comes greyed out, also while using Face mode. $\endgroup$ – LeoNas Mar 18 at 15:28

You are using Face selection mode.

Switch to Vertex or Edge mode to enable the first extrusion.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! I was able to extrude the edges of the curve, but it looks like a folded strip of paper. How can I fill in the shape? $\endgroup$ – sdfadfasdfsfwwww Mar 18 at 17:30
  • $\begingroup$ Select the loop and use Mesh>Faces>Fill or Grid fill. The Grid fill is better. $\endgroup$ – LeoNas Mar 18 at 17:37
