2D to 3D item conversion

Hi,
Does anyone know a trick to convert any flat items from a picture to a 3D striped one? In short, I'm looking to get the same effect as in AutoCad. Possibly automatically and with less effort as possible.
Many thanks,
Lukas

No idea what you're actually asking to do.... never heard the term of 3D striped one so you're going to have to show examples or explain better.

Actually, I'm trying to reproduce the 3D objects that were embodied with grid pattern, often in green, in very old video games from the eighties. But we can still see it in many sci-fi movies. There were a spaceship pursuit in star wars, episode a new hope (I think) where at a certain time the spaceship were designed with grid pattern.
I hope you see clearer now? otherwise, I'll post a picture if you wish.
I have no clue about how it's called, sorry for my lack of experience in graphics design world.

as the saying goes... a picture says a thousand words.

Not 3D and not stripes!

The car looks like a low poly effect in outline mode, not sure how easy it is to do. I think you can also
do a similar wireframe effect using the Blend tool in Ai too.

I doubt you'll get anything that can do it with a simple click though there might be an app.

@greenco Good job we got the images because they're no where near what I thought you were going on about...

The 'dashboard' is basically a line drawing using perspective so you can do that however you wish to do it. You can do it in photoshop using a grid and then 'squashing' one end using the perspective/distort tools, then adding a mirrored duplicate,

The car is not possible with 2D software without a LOT of time, effort and you'll actually need an understanding of how that works relative to the image too. In a 3D program it's literally a change of the viewport or texture settings once you have a 3D model to work from.

In both cases you'll be hard pushed to find a program that can convert them from a 'photo' to the shown images at the press of a button. In fact I can say with 100% certainty you can't do that with the car image.
