…Now, the last one I want to show you is the NURBS planar.…And basically what this does it it uses a NURBS…curve as a cookie cutter to cut out a plane.…Now, the one requirement for this is that the curve has to exist on a plane.…So, here I have a curve here, and if…you look at it from the side, it's completely flat.…So, if I have vertices that are above…or below other vertices, this probably won't work.…Let's take a look at this.…So, we're going to select the curve, and just do Surfaces > Planar.…
And as you can see it just fills in…the hole and it creates what's called the planar surface.…Now, I have my original curve here and if I want I could…edit that so it's, actually a Bézier curve here, so I can edit it.…But also notice that as soon as I move this…up or below the other vertices, it breaks the effect.…So, you need to keep these planar.…Now, this object here, it's actually kind of a cheat.…So, if you actually right-click over this and do Control Vertices, you see that I…have vertices all the way out and if I take a look at Hulls, again right-clicking…
