Default Re: Defining surfaces and other new questions....

Thanks again Lisa, and ya, I had hit that 'd' button. I use 'Alt Z' to delete a lot and must have struck it in my madness....hehe.

I even tried the Poly and Polyline buttons and it didn't help.

I have to admit, I'm not sure what the purpose is of the rest of the steps...are they required everytime I want to make a 2D curve?

So to recap, to make my little Ice Cream Cone, I do the above and get it nice and rounded. I can even get it to look ideal in all views.
Then I add the bottom part, the V.
I select it all and add a surface to it, but no matter how I do that, it's always a point at the top.

I cannot see another level or part, it looks like a cone in wireframe, but when it fills in it looks just like the screenshot I posted earlier.

Any idea how I can make my little cone?
