Default Trimmed surfaces to fresh surfaces

Hi,

I was not able to reply to my last post for some reason...But I did figure it out after all so thank you to those for the help!

I have one more problem that I can't figure out. I have done it once before but now forget....I have a trimmed surface but just want it to be a surface. I deleted history, reset transformation, and froze transformation. As you can see in the pic that there are still reminance of the surface that I trimmed and in order to attach the sides to this surface it can't be a trimmed surface.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks,
moff

If memory serves, I think you can "rebuild" the surface to get rif od its trimmedness.

Problem with trim edges are that they don't actually cut away anything. Because they can be arbitrary in shape and complexity and a general nurbs surface can't, they just define an mathematical region where the surface will not be rendered (usually the whole surface is still stored in memory, unless 'shrink surface' is checked and then it will cut to the nearest isoparm). So I guess that if you made your isoparms line up with the trim edge you could theoretically rebuild it or detach it someway, but how hard that would be I do not know.
