nurbsToSubdivPref([bridge=int], [capType=int], [collapsePoles=boolean], [matchPeriodic=boolean], [maxPolyCount=int], [offset=linear], [reverseNormal=boolean], [solidType=int], [trans00=float], [trans01=float], [trans02=float], [trans10=float], [trans11=float], [trans12=float], [trans20=float], [trans21=float], [trans22=float], [trans30=float], [trans31=float], [trans32=float])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

nurbsToSubdivPref is undoable, queryable, and NOT editable.

This command sets the values used by the nurbs-to-subdivision surface preference. This preference is used by the nurbs creation commands and is saved between Maya sessions.

To query any of the flags, use the "-query" flag.

For more information on the flags, see the node documentation for the "nurbsToSubdivProc" node.

Return value
