## Can you create a 3D model in AutoCAD?

Several types of 3D modeling are available in AutoCAD. Each of these 3D modeling technologies offer a different set of capabilities. **Wireframe modeling** is useful for initial design iterations and as reference geometry, serving as a 3D framework for subsequent modeling or modification.

## How do I convert 2D to 3D in AutoCAD?

**Use AutoCAD’s “Extrude” and “Revolve” commands** to turn 2-D designs into 3-D models. “Extrude” is how 3-D modelers to refer to the technique of stretching a 2-D shape into 3-D space. AutoCAD performs this expansion by first extending a new axis at right angles to the 2-D axes on which your 2-D design sits.

## What are the different types of 3D modeling?
