Default Converting nurbs to polygons

OK, lets get right down to buisness.

So, I have been trying to convert nurbs to polygons for the past hour and nothing has worked that I know about. I am doing the Low Poly Game Character tutorial.l I have gotten up to the point where you convert nurs to polys and this is what it says: Error: NURBS to Polygons: Shell tessellation failed. Open Script Editor for details.

I have also looked in the script editor, but it means nothing to me...

Ok thank you,
wirercx:rant:

PS: when I go into the option box it says use control points and I do that and thats when it happens. If you needed to know that...

well the think is is that I was searching around and I found a post that Kurt posted and it said that it happens to him too. And he said to juts push it and pull it until it looks good.

But here is a Screenshot of what it looks like after I did the conversion with the error if that is any help:




Thanks
