Comparing different types of 3D surfaces

In this video, we'll take a 3D tour of the most common types of Surfacing Commands. We'll see how they can all look the same and then with minor tweaks, how they can look quite a bit different. This will help to illustrate which one type of Surface Command will work best for you in your project. I've also purposely kept the examples pretty simple, so the before and after will be much easier to see. Let's start off with the CASE A, where all the surfaces that I am going to generate will look at the same, even though we are using 5 different commands. Just for reference though, I am going to go ahead and do this one Extrude and do it Straight.

So, this is the Surface > Extrude Curve > Straight, select and then right-click to Enter. Then I am just going out to the end. Well, this won't look the same as the others, but I want to use it for reference, because the next command is Extruding (Along Curve) is very similar. So, let's find this up on the Surface menu >...
