1. Created a voronoi pattern as an SVG
  2. Imported SVG to Blender.
  3. Turned SVG into a Mesh.
  4. Used "Solidify" to "extrude" the mesh.

I now have a 3D object - I do only hard surface modelling for 3D printing.

The issue: The object is very dark (no matter what Viewport shading I use) and I can see vertices, edges & faces ONLY in wireframe mode (see image below).

Question: how can I light my object to appear as other "native" Blender objects?

Object is too dark

Thanks, Roy

    $\begingroup$ I guess when you imported it, it has a created a material with the color your svg had. Go in the Material panel and delete this material $\endgroup$

When you imported your svg object, it automatically created a material with the color of your svg. Go in the Properties panel > Material panel and delete this material.
