I have two nurbs circles that I lofted to make a cylinder-like object. I want to close off or fill in one end of the object. How do I do that? I'm not a modeler so I may need more info if it requires a complicated procedure.

in maya. u can select a circle and do surfaces>planar... for this, the circle needs to be perfectly flat though...... if that doesn't work, try cutting that circle into two pieces and then loft them....

Thank Fire. I used surfaces->planar for some of them and it worked. I also need to do it for ones that are curved though. How do I cut those circles in half without ruining the shape?

i haven't done nurbs modelling in quite a while, but i think there are a few tool that'll help u cut curves. i can think of two right now..

edit curves> detach curve and edit curve> cut curve.

hope that helps..


page 1 tells u about detach curve and page 2 tells u about cut curve..
