Hi Paul, this is great, thanks a lot! I am using it for several projects. However, for one application I would like to have the condition, that the 3D surface is tangential to every curve (contour). Is there such an option or where do I need to hook? Best regards!

There is a bug in nrbcoons.m, at line 82. all 'u's should be replaced with 'v's - the ruled surfaces and bilinear surfaces generated are equivalent but not in directly-addable representations in the current code.

I think we need a document to explain all the function and how to use.

When running democurve.m, execution get stuck in an infinite loop in findspan.m.

Can I find the original c-files somewhere, before conversion of all files to m-files?

Hello,

Thank for this useful toolbox.
How to get the rational basis function of nurbs with this toolbox ?

There are bugs that make this toolbox uncompatible with the Nurbs2IGES
(http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/12087-nurbs2iges).

This toolbox is very useful. It can improve many problems in my applications. However, it seems some small bugs when I evaluate the derivative of nurbs curves/surfaces.
In the file "nrbderiv ":
this file call the function "bspderiv". If the weights of the original nurbs curve/surface are equal ( example: the weight = 1 at each vertex ), this weights of nurbs curve/surface vanish after call bspderiv in file nrbderiv.
Maybe, we should revise the file "nrbderiv" before calling the function "bspderiv" to preserve the original weights.

I have a set of points say 300 something following the outline of cerebral aneurysm. I want to smooth this curve using the NURBS tool box provided here. How do i use this ? Where do I give my input? I just need a Bspline fitting to the data I have i.e. effectively to smooth the outline of the trace I have. Help me out..
Thanks!
