Importing from Illustrator to Maya 2012

First of all create what ever it is you want in Illustrator, here I have created a some text.


Go to save as and save it as a Illustator eps file.

So that it works in Maya 2012 in the eps option select eps 8.


You will have to do it one letter at a time, select in the bevel plus option in the surface option menu. Just make sure that the at start and at end are ticked and it is turned into polygons not Nurbs, then change the extrusion values ect.
