If I understand your question, you want to provide some depth to the flat graphic you uploaded. The best option is to use the Push-Pull tool. Be sure to connect all edges to form closed loops or you will not be able to adjust the face surfaces. Also check to make sure that all of your faces are white (not blue)…the blue shade denotes the back face and you want the front face to be displayed.

I have re-uploaded your model with some of the faces push pulled.

If something similar to this is what you are after, you need to edit the model so that all the faces show as either white or blue. You may then reverse any of the blue faces if you wish.

thanks for your reply, of course push pull tool is useful but it producing 90 deg edges I want a half cylindrical shape like shows in the image

appreciate your efforts

Once you have a solid 3d object you can use a tool like Fredo’s RoundCorners to give the effect you wish…
Remember that Sketchup can’t cope with very tiny edges/facets, so Scaling up x10, then rounding, Scale down at end, might be needed.
Get RoundCorner here = http://sketchucation.com/pluginstore?pln=RoundCorner
You will also need Fredo’s latest Lib = http://sketchucation.com/pluginstore?pln=LibFredo6

Depending on the intended use of this object…

Remember that very complex geometry with zillions of facets may look no better than a less faceted object with smoothed edges and a projected texture.
OR even simpler use the image as a Material texture and apply that onto a flat face - seen from a distance it’ll look just as good…
