  NURBS Query  

The Power NURBS Query panel is where non-destructive query operations on the Power NURBS objects live.  These Query operations extract the selected objects into newly constructed copies of the selected type. These operations are useful for getting the data into a format that can be used for other commands.

Extr NURBS:  Extracts the selected sub-object faces to a Power NURBS object
Extr To Mesh:  Extracts the selected sub-objects to an editable mesh object
Extr To Curve:
  Extracts the selected sub-object edges to 3ds Max NURBS curve object
Extr To Nurbs:  Extracts the selected sub-object faces underlying surface to a 3ds Max NURBS surface object
