This node produces a subdivision surface based on a NURBS surface.

This will just create a subdivision surface with the mesh points matching the cvs of the surface. If you have enough spans, the resulting shape will be exactly the same if you started with a uniform, bi-cubic surface. Use rebuild surface function to get it into that state if you do not like the result of the direct conversion.
