The Apple patent filing called "Working with 3D objects" explains how to coax a 2D object into three dimensions by lifting your fingers and then manipulating it through gestures.

In one example, Apple describes a pinch-and-pull gesture that can squeeze and stretch certain parts of the object as if you were squeezing and stretching a lump of clay. These gestures could be especially useful in a CAD program in which you need to design and tweak 3D objects and tap into a menu of different tools.
