Hi there.

You need to select each of of your NURBs surfaces, and under the attribute editor for each surface you'll see 'Tessellation'. Select 'Highest quality', and bump up U and V divisions factor to the highest it will go. This will increase render times, but sort out those dodgy NURBs surfaces when you render. A good way to see the difference this makes is to extrude a circle along a curve. Render it at low res tessellation - the cyclinder will be jagged. Increase the tessellation quality, and it will render out nice and smoothly.

Hope this helps

Hmmm, wierd.

Never mind, at least you've got it working now, which is good. The wheel looks fab by the way, I've seen that tut on the web, I must give it a go myself.
