Below is an example of the type of surface I am trying to create that was produced in a different modeler. I see how I can create a similar surface with the birail tools, however it appears that there is a limitation in that I can't use closed profile curves. Is there a way to do it that I'm missing? Let me know if the problem isn't clear.
