Sweeps out a 2D cross section (a circle, square, whatever, doesn't even have to be a closed path) through a 3D curve, and returns the generated surface as [X,Y,Z] for use with SURF.
Also, as a fun option, it will fly through the path generated, which looks really cool if you have a fast computer and you maximize the figure. In the DEMO mode, the ROAD cross-section is my favorite. Try changing the colormap as well.
