Why is a push/pulled NURBS surface a tapered extrude?


If I create a NURBS surface and then use the push/pull tool to extract it, why is the resulting 3D object a tapered extrude rather than an extrude? I see no taper.

I think its as simple as the Tapered Extrude command allows NURBS curves as the source shape and the Extrude command does not. It was probably the easiest way to integrate the Push/Pull command around the existing 3d solid types.


I used to use the Tapered Extrude command with a taper angle of zero a fair amount prior to the additional of the Push/Pull command. It accepts a few more shapes as the starting point (3d polygons for example).
