I have a rectangle that I've added a 3d bevel & extrude effect. Is it possible to maintain the perspective of the object and convert it back to 2d. Where it would then be just a series of paths representing the object and not 3d.

Expand was disabled but I tried 'Expand Appearance' and it worked. Thanks
