when it is 2D, so why do you want to give special depth to it?
However you can change aspect ration or scale of your import geometry with:

Code:
transportPoint -scale '(0.001 0.1 1)'

after importing your mesh, you can scale it with above command in terminal!
of course you should choose appropriate scale for your geometry
