Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,
Does anybody know/had experience with software that can turn 2D images to 3D models in CAD program, preferably in an offline environment (not on cloud)?

The resulting model has to be accurate enough for aerospace engineering purposes.

from looking online, I really didn't find anything except photo modeler.

Thanks.

Are you looking for a software program that can automatically convert 2D to 3D, or with the aid of an experienced CAD operator?
To extrapolate 3D from 2D for visualization purposes, maybe... To create a 3D file accurate enough to be useful in building parts, there is a lot of information that must be added to a 2D file. As an example, think about the 2D drawings for a turbine rotor or even a piston. There is just no way to extrapolate the shapes of those 2 items from a 2D drawing.
Almost any 3D parametric CAD program will import a 2D drawing to use as a starting point-here is how it goes:

Autodesk has a tool called 123D that would work great for your purposes I think. Give it a try and see what you think.
