displaying birail surfaces
on Feb 17, 2006 at 2:28:12 pm

For some reason, I am unable to see the birail surfaces that I'm creating. I'm using the birail + 2 tool, and my profile curves have the same number of spans. When I look in the outliner, I see "dpsBirailSurface1". However, when I look in the scene view, I see no birail surface. If I loft the two profile curves that I'm attempting to birail, the lofted surface WILL display. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

I'm using Maya 7 on a Mac.

If the node is being created but you can't see the surface, that means the geometry has failed for some reason. Check to makse sure your rail curves have the same direction, and that all profile curves properly intersect with them, etc.

No error messages showing up in your Script Editor?
