I have created a wireframe object of a head a la Essential Lightwave 3D-7.5 but I've been unsucessful in covering the wireframe. The message that I get from spline patches is that the curves don't cross properly. Even so I've tried a very simple figure -4 concentric circles , and have gotten the same error message. 1)Can I use "spline draw" to make the wireframe?
2) If a line becomes curved when using the "make closed curve" operation does this exclude its use as part of a quad?
3) Are there several methods for creating quad surfaces?If so what are they?
4) Can I modify "pen" so that I can make an open curve"?

just hit "m" and merge the points. Or select where the points overlap and hit ctrl+w to weld... or is it just w? I can't remember and I'm too lazy to check. Welding is the best way, merging is the quickest (I've had a few probs with just merging though)
