In the top row, solid, image, and hatch Fills. In the middle row, linear gradient Fills. In the bottom row, combinations of path and linear gradients creating 3D effects.

3D effects with gradient fills

The PathGradientFill object makes it easy to create beautiful 3D effects. The TwoColorBell gradient type uses a bell-shaped curve to interpolate colors. The result is a perfect imitation of rounded objects, shines, and shadows. You can easily create cylinders, spheres, rounded gel buttons, and many other three-dimensional looking objects.

Tanks, pipes, and gel buttons

Tanks, pipes, gel buttons, and glassy objects are all easy with linear and path gradient fills.
