(big help needed)!having trouble with nurbs tut

im having trouble with the tut at :

whaen i do it, i get a tunnel, and the writer gets a 3d shape…

sorry, please help, i am new to blender

Did you perhaps forget this step?:

Enter editmode, select all (A) and press “Endpoint U” in the editbuttons menu. Do not press Endpoint V (they are uniform now), because it will ruin the tubular shape of our creation.


i did that step(pressed endpoint u).

somehow, the way they skin it makes it 3d…

Could you put up a pic of what you have (or mail it to me at dotdotdashh @ yahoo.com) so I have a better idea of what exactly the problem is?
