this has to be real simple. I have a floor plan of a house and I want to create it in 3D in modeler.

Points to polygons-extrude-bevel??

Or?????

Thanks

Monking with the EPSF loader. Looks like I could lay it out in Illustrator and then import it into modeler.

Will this work??

Thanks

That's how I would do it.
Then boolian out the doors so you can retain the header (or whatever that part of the wall is that's abouve the door).

Yup, create one big poly, bevel up, bevel in a little, bevel down. Bingo, all walls done.
Then use boolean / slice to add doors and windows.
To build your profile, I'd suggest laying out some primitives then running the plugin "ume_unigon" http://www.pictrix.jp/lw/index2.html
