I am very pleased with the new modelling features in version 10.5. Here are a couple of wishes for nurbs in 11:

1. The ability to change a planar nurbs curve into a surface - and the edges of any nurbs surface into curves. I can do both of these today, but it takes several clicks.

2. The ability to chose method of conversion when extracting a nurbs curve from a solid: When I try to extract very simple curves, I get very complex results with lots of anchorpoints - a lot more than is required to describe the shape of the curves.

(To prove this extrude a simple planar nurbs curve and extract its egde: the three or four control points have now become dozens!)

I would like to be able to chose between methods of extraction or choose the acuracy af the resulting curve, so I can get some control over the complexity of the curve. (Or you could just fix the problem :-)

3. Hypernurbs!

4. Speed! ? Working with nurbs has become frustratingly s l o w!
