Extruding from 2D?

I’m trying to achieve an workflow like this with Blender 2.8:

image

Does anyone know if something like that is possible? Maybe with a plugin?

you could draw it in blender with curves 2D convert to mesh and extrude in 3D

some soft can make contours of image and makes curves out of it then import in blender !

happy bl

Going back a year or two, a few people were working on getting PO Trace to work with Blender. Not sure what the current status is on that work. You might be able to search for PO Trace and Blender and see what comes up?

Otherwise, a stand alone app like Inkscape might work.
