How to create a 3D shape from standard shapes

PlastiSketch has some built in shape generators that can be used to create custom 3D objects


First use the wizard symbol in the layer thumbnail to open the shape generator.

Next the shape wizard opens, for example choose the "star" shape and press "Apply".

Result using star and circle, the height box between both layers is highlighted
