Creating 3D Symbols

  In 2008 or so I created a 3d symbol in SP. Began with just a line drawing, I think. Drew the front side, which in this case was precisely the same as the back, and then somehow gave it some depth. Don't recall how I did that. Does anyone know this? Haven't been able to find anything about it in help. The file attached is what it became when exported to dxf. Looking for relevant SP file. Thanks.

Solid Polygon

It looks like you used solid polygons. Draw-->Solid-->Polygon. After you create the shape you can edit it and give it a height which will give it thickness.
