Default Im not going to Panic......help!

Ok this is what ive done.
I have modeled one half of an aircraft fusilage in NURBS, and I have also used the trim tool to cut out the main windows at the front. Looks good ish, but I now need to attach both halfs of the fusilage but I keep getting a worning that Trimmed surfaces cant be attached to each other.?


You can see the problem at the front of the plane in the picture, need to attach the two halfs.

Cheers for any help!

email me personally

Yep, trimmed surfaces can't be attached. You'll need to convert to polys or avoid trims with this object.

You can trim the final surface though.
