A point in three-space, created when you use NURBS modeling to create a Point Curve or Point Surface, or when you create an individual point sub-object. Points that are part of a Point Curve or Point Surface are constrained to lie on the curve or surface.
Points behave somewhat like vertices for , but their behavior is not identical and they are a distinct object type. are also a distinct object type. You can't use spline vertices or helper points as NURBS points (though you can convert a spline to a NURBS curve).
