NURBS Extrude

Hey!

I've got a Problem with NURBS->Extrude.
I draw one Curve for the Path and a second Curve for the Path, like I've done it all the Time.
The Problem ist, that the Depth of the Curve isn't the same at all Parts of the Object.
Here you've a Screenshot of the Problem.

Hmm, this is a normal function of the path and extrusion relationship. Maya's NURBS don't have a "sweep" function or NetworkSurface function, alas. You may have to extrude this in sections and then join them after it's done?

I know this sounds super simple, but try increasing your CV count around the problem areas. That will preserve the shape (volume) of the extrusion. Use Insert Knots with the "between selections" option. Selecting a range with the Curve Point component, holding shift to add another to your selection.
