Illustrator File Importing Oddly

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...

Pretty simple Illustrator 8 file won't import correctly. Or rather, won't function correctly when extruded. You can see the center of this image has an anchor shape, but if you look you'll also notice there are some non-extruded extra bits that do not belong.  Just in case there's some weirdness with the .ai file (it was an auto trace), I completely rebuilt it from scratch so I am fairly certain there are no extra paths or layers or locked items or anything like that in the file. Any ideas what's happening here?

Looks fine here. I am not trying to add special cap properties. 


Inherently not all caps properties are going to work as the points can sometimes bunch up or even overlap. I'll play a bit more...



Edit: The max safe cap size is about .1-.25. To go larger than that would require cleanup.

Alternatively, if you turn off "Constrain" you can make much larger/stylized bevels...though the path shapes will crowd together more. There's nothing wrong with your Illustrator file, nor with C4d's functioning.
