    Surface -> Mesh?

    Hello all, I am quite new to blender and had a question.
    Umm I recently did the heart tutorial with the NURBS sphere. However, when i exported it as direct x, it didn't work. It said something like that of object not a mesh. Is there a way to convert surface into mesh or other way of exporting it into direct x format?

    curves amd nurbs

    to make an object from curves and nurbs you have to select the object then
    Alt-C to do the conversion and then it becvomes a mesh object

    the same is true with text font
    So have fun with blender

    Is there perhaps a way to convert it at a higher quality? I have recently done the dolphin tutorial and when I converted to mesh, it looked horrifying.

    Add a subsurf modifier in the edit buttons. It should smooth everything out and add a lot more polys. Hope it helps!

    curves panel

    in the curves panel F9 you can define how many extrapolation points you want to have
    so you have to experiment with this a little
    don't put too much or it will be slow for render

    and with the subsurf it should work fine
