there are two interesting kinds of objects: Meshes and Surfaces. Each of them offers very cool features.
Object Type Specific Features
Nice Features of Surfaces:
- They're as scalable as vector graphics (really nice!)
- You can build winding things real simply.
Nice Features of Meshes:
- You can build organic things really good using the Sculpt Mode and a graphic tablet.
- You can use some special things like Physics.
There are things for which Surfaces are better and things for which Meshes are better. But how can I use both the best features of Surfaces and the best features of Meshes on one object at once?
For example: How can I use Physics (like on Meshes) on lossless scalable objects (like Surfaces)?
