How to create solid model of 3D frame

How to create solid model of 3D frame

How to create solid model of 3D frame

I'm writing my master thesis and I have few quite big problems.
I would like to compare results received from two models which are made of diferent tipes of geometry elements.
First model which I already have is made of beam and plate elements.
Second, which I would like to have is the same geometry but made of solid elements.
And the problem is how to achieve model with employment of solid elements??
I attached picture with views on geometry of my construction.

I'm looking forward your help!

"I am writing my master's thesis ..." = student post ... please go away, try engineering.com

but i'll give you something for free (though it'll get me in trouble) ... you can't get 3D elements from 2D geometry

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?
