But I wanted to try my hand at something new. I cut the lightning bolt out of a grid, but I have no idea to get it more 3 dimensional. the top surface is flat, but as you can see from the show logo, the surface is raised in areas, and I am unable to figure out how to achieve this. I could really use your help


This is easy.

One way would be to delete all (if any) interior vertices in the lightning bolt, just leave the shape’s outline edges and verts. Then manually add 4 verts right where you see the central Z shape in the original logo. Then move these 4 verts up in the +z axis to get the shape into 3D. Also connect these verts to the other nearest verts. Finally, select all verts and press f to make them into faces.

an easy way to do this is to trace the hard edges and just elevate the vertices inside
