Also, what's the best tutorial(s) on drawing 3D images online or offline?

3d models have more information than 2d images. in the most complete sense, no software can automatically convert 2d images into 3d models. if you really want an answer, you must understand that your question is vague and needs to be rephrased.

example 1: if you want to make a 2d flat image appear as though it is being viewed at an angle, you can "skew" it in most photo manipulating software and some icon makers

example 2: if you want to make a 2d flat image appear as though it is on a box, you can find specialised software that can automatically do this by reusing the 2d image as a texture and mapping it onto a set of supplied vertices

if you want full control of creating a 3d image then you may need to read up on convolution filters and texture mapping. you can download environments such as processing.org that make implementation easier. if you aren't a programmer, you may find some 3d editors easier to use.

now, what was your question? :)

I sell toilet fittings and want the fittings made into 3d models so i can make presentations. What software can do that and what would be the process to get the fittings made into models?

It's impossible in your sense unless you have many photos of the same object at different angles. I believe M$ has a beta of a piece of software that can take many photos and stitch them into a 3d world. Still that software(don't have the name on the top of my head) simply uses the images as surfaces and isn't a full 3d model. You'll know what I mean if you try it.

need a software to convert 2d to 3d..
i need it urgently for ma project..

i found this example in this same forum..pls let me know...
