Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Project curves on polys

Can the "project curves on surface" function be duplicted to be used in polys somehow? Is there a way to get the same result but instead of doing it on nurbs you do it on polys?

Curve projections are a NURBS-only function. You can get the curve onto a poly mesh by making the mesh live and then drawing your curve on it. Not exactly the same, but it might work for you.
