I'm having a big problem with the bezier curves in Blender. I'm trying to fill up the curves, but I can't. I have already seen some videos from YouTube, that say that I have to click on the 2D button.

But when i click on the 2D button, this is what it happens.

I thought it was a problem with the camera, but:

What am I doing wrong?

After you switch from 3D to 2D, you should choose Both, Front or Back instead of None in the curve properties drop down menu.

Also apply the rotation of your curve (Ctrl + A > Apply rotation), before switching to 2D.

  • $\begingroup$ I've done what you suggested josh sanfelici and it is "almost" the same as the 3rd screenshot, but a bit thicker. But it doesn't fill up and it doesn't keep the same shape. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Make sure you're using x end y axis only (not z). If not, rotate your curve (And don't forget to apply the rotation). $\endgroup$ Oct 7, 2015 at 7:40
