Turn 2D objects into 3D using Repoussé

Adobe Repoussé is a tool for turning 2D paths into 3D meshes. The term Repoussé is derived from the art creating a shaped metal piece by hammering from the reverse side. You can use the Repoussé feature to take a layer and add dimension.
By selecting a text layer, or layer mask, work path or current selection, you can convert a 2D area in your image into a 3D mesh, offering you the ability to work with 3D features such as bevels, embosses, this is especially useful for creating 3D text effects.
Once in the Repoussé dialog box, you can apply a 3D preset to your object, or customize your own using the Materials, Extrude, Bevel, Inflate, Scent and Internal Constraints settings.
