I currently have a spline object of an irregular, semi-cirular shape...similar to a guitar or viola cut lengthwise down the middle. I would like to raise the center so that it slopes smoothly down to the edges, keeping the edges with the same "y" value. Anyone have an idea? - jim

From your description I am assuming you have a spline similair to the one shown in my first image. If this is correct and you want a dome type of shape make at least 2 more curves that join to define the curvature of the dome then join those 2 new curves with the first one. Select all 3 curves and use the Patch command under the construct tab and it will create a mesh for you. Hope this helps if I understood what you are trying to do correctly. :)
