    After several people asked how I was able to turn a 2-D image into a 3-D Model I slapped together a quick tutorial that uses Google Sketchup.

    This is just awesome. I'm currently awaiting delivery of my copy of "Dyson's Delves" and I don't think I have a choice but to try this out when it arrives. Thanks for the great tut.

    This tutorial is excellent and even I was able to follow it and make a 3D super-futuristic dungeon video. Strongly recommended.
