I am trying to make a 3d sketch into a solid. After trying everything I can think of, I admit defeat. Can someone tell me how to turn this thing into a solid?

Thanks guys, that worked. I started from that blog, but ran into trouble when it came to the patching. I tried patching before I posted.

 

The thing is, I was having a really hard time selecting just a single line of the previous patch. I couldn't figure out how to do it. It seemed like if I put the model at an extreme angle I had an easier time singling out the line I wanted.

 

Did you have a smiliar experience while putting together that post for me?

Hi!

 

Look at "Automatic Edge Chain".

 

If is on, you can select at a time a serie of continous lines... loops, etc.

If you disable it, you can pick a single line at a time.
