How can I start with nurbs? 
By SCasella on Dec 31, 2000 05:17 PM
I use 3DStudio MAX 2.5, I've never read a manual so I've never learned how to use nurbs! Anyone can tell me a simple way to start learning in that way?

Thanks for all!

Nurbs in max r3 are mutch improved , max 2.5 I wouldn't bother w/em but r3 their pretty good, their not up to maya or rhino but good enough. How to make a nurbs object or patch is the cool thing in max, create a primitive object , teapot or whatever colapse it to a nurbs object and a good nurbs cage it makes, To make one your self go to create splines select nurbs point or cv curve and build your cage.
Tutorials are available all over. go to zombieczar.com/rsme.html  click 3d and go down to the bottum.

subd= sub division..

the face on the very left is the original shape..then its been subdivided once( the head on the right)
and then a second time using another subd method...( center head)..

i dont know max that well, but i do know that rhino3d is a great nurbs modeller. go to www.rhino3d.com and you can download an evaluation version. the interface is pretty user friendly and intuitive...my suggestion would be to try that if youre interested in nurbs
