Previously, I select 2 lines then Convert to NURBS, they will be Group. This time, I select each line, convert to NURBS. then select 4 nurbs Compose. It work good. However when I Push. It become like picture below:

Loft the curves into a surface and then run a shell on the surface to create a proper solid shape. 

Hi Claes,

It work in case because I have 2 similar nurbs curves. What if we have 2 different of nurbs curves?

You can only combine NURBS with other NURBS. So you correctly realized that you have to convert the lines to NURBS so you can Compose them. You could also select the 4 curves and Create Surface From Curves in the 3D PowerPack to get a single surface that you can then use the Push/Pull Tool on.
