Introduction to Maya - Modeling Fundamentals Vol 2
This course will look in the fundamentals of modeling in Maya with an emphasis on creating good topology. It's aimed at people that have some modeling experience in Maya but are having trouble with complex objects.

is it Possible to even do this (Bezier curve issue)?

I have a bezier curve of a simple piece of geometry I'm going to be working with.

However, I have a vertex point issue / closure issue on the curve I'm addressing. For whatever reason, Control /shift didn't close the curve (like a pixel length still open). I probably did the operation too fast so that's no big deal, I can rebuild the curve...except that I really like this version and would like to keep it. But, I now have an unclosed curve I cant extrude until I (if I can keep it and not have to rebuild) finish the operation on. I can't seem to be able to go back in from object mode and reactivate the curve so that I can operate a close procedure on the last two vertices.

Is this even possible, or am I forced to have to rebuild a B curve every time I either miss the close operation as above, or forget it and exit the curve operation to object mode altogether, etc?

Any help would be appreciated.

I dont know if it's exactly what are you looking for but if you want to close/open curve first of all select that curve go to Surface Panel and there Edit Curves -> Open/Close curves.


May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories of tomorrow.

Thanks Creck. No, not exactly, but I really appreciated the reply.

I've got the open close in my shelf (which I use for the standard curves with planar operations and such. It's not quite the same issue. My problem is I accidentally disengaged (went into another mode) the B curve without closing it with control+shift. It (Curve) won't sort of "let me back in" to re-engage the curve from object mode so that I can finish it by closing the last two points.

Curve issue

Do you still have history on this curve, if so you can click on the spot where you disengaged.
