After creating the profile shape. When he switch from 3d to 2d the face get fill. I created a simple triangle shape and trying to switch from 3d to 2d why my curve get flat and not get fill.

enter image description here

Any suggestion whats going wrong or why i cant fill the face switching to 2d. Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ Is it filled already? If you show screen information it will show you the face and vertex count. Blender has many options in the 3D View to show such information $\endgroup$ Dec 10, 2020 at 5:49
  • $\begingroup$ If you draw a very curvy shape such a the text [S] converted to a curve, then the results may be extremely obvious $\endgroup$ Dec 10, 2020 at 5:51

  • $\begingroup$ 2D curves assume the curve's object-Z is normal to the plane of the control-points. In Object mode, rotate the triangle so it lies in XY, and then apply the rotation. If still no fill, kick it. Set the fill to 'None', and back again to one of the other settings. $\endgroup$

EDITED: Rotate on X 90 degrees and apply rotation. 2D is truncating the Z axis.

  • $\begingroup$ The scale already applied.Plz check the blend file attach $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Your .blend file is what I am referring to. The SIZE of the triangle is tiny. Try my answer: Scale up 1000 times, apply scale (again) and try to make 2D. It worked in your .blend file. $\endgroup$
