Extrude Imported AI file?

I have a logo that was created in AI. I have imported it into AE and am now wondering if there is a way I can utilize Ray-Traced 3D to extrude the vector image (which is primarily text-based). I tried to use it, but the only two options that appear are Curvature and Segments. Thanks!
You probably want to split up the Illustrator graphic into multiple layers (one for each object you'd like to independently control in Ae), import it as a composition, and separately convert each vector layer to shapes.
You can then extrude the shapes with the ray-traced 3D renderer.
