It at least got me to the next step. I've not finished the tutorial yet so I'm not sure if it will turn out the same. Farhood said: After expanding all strokes I carefully pasted every part in Photoshop, merged them together, converted in Smart Object and then tried to make 3d extrusion but I get the same message as before. Do you have any idea how to handle this other way? Atiq Sumon said: Beautiful creation . I love to learn them . eddie said: I think the tutorial needs more information, there are so many tweaks in the 3D that I feel lost without enough information, it might be good for pros but not for beginners. eddie said: Go to Illustrator and expand all strokes and unite them in the pathfinder when needed, then copy everything and paste in Photoshop as Smart Object.
