Can anyone help me with creating a 3D sign from a black & white logo I have in .bmp or .jpg format?   I would like to experiment with various design ideas but need to get the black part of the logo into SP as a solid.  Thanks!


I am attaching a .png format of the logo as the .bmp file is very large.

save the artwork to a folder in the 3D / TEXTURES / BITMAPS folder..


Create a SOLID / PLANE or SOLID / CUBE within the plan / model to act as the sign board...


looking at the MODEL, place the a texture on the SOLID / PLANE or the SOLID / CUBE.... or place the texture on glass, or another object...


be sure that the texture is set to SCALE... also use the setting TRANSPARANT as needed..
