How do you use NURBS curves in Maya?

Draw NURBS curves

  1. Select Create > Curve Tools > CV Curve Tool.
  2. Click to place the CVs. The first CV looks like a hollow box; subsequent CVs are dots. Hulls are drawn between the CVs as you place them. For each CV after the third one you place, the shape of the curve is drawn.
  3. Press Enter to finish the curve.

What is the difference between NURBS and Polygons?

The difference between NURBS and Polygons is NURBS use curves and splines, whereas Polygons use flat and straight lines and vertices to create a mesh. NURBS are most commonly used in engineering models where accuracy is paramount. Polygons create solid planes and shapes by drawing lines between specific vertices.
