Either import images from 3DSM or similar then autotrace and tweak or

Use Adobe Dimensions which creates vector 3D artwork. However files output
from AD will should be tweaked in Illustrator before importing into Flash as
they always contain a fair number of masks/compound paths which can add to
the file size.
It also pays off to recreate any gradients in Flash as this helps reduce
file size.
