Default How do I make 1 surface of these 3 ?

Hello All
Long time no see,but we're still learning...
Trying to create my first full character and having some troubles connecting these 3 shapes.
What would be the good way to go?
Connect surface does not work somehow.
I'd like to add a lattice or bone later.
Thanks

Those shapes will never be 1 mesh unless you convert to polygons and combine. Take a look at my arm stitching text tutorial at my site, or the VIP vid here at SM.

The nurbs can only be attatched to each other, IF they are a "valid" nurbs-surface, which means that they have an uninterrupted surface-flow.

They canno be trimmed and they must have four sides, with the U and V direction.

But you could make a patch model. Making your surfaces consist of many four-sided-surfaces. But not with the surfaces you now have.

But that I know little about.
