Paraboloid primitive with wireframe

Hello everyone!
I do need your help as I´m a complete novice in 3d modelling. Iḿ trying to create paraboloid with wire frame, though I can´t figure out how to do this (wire frame, not paraboloid). Any help and suggestions are highly appreciated.
Thanks

Paraboloid primitive with wireframe

Hi,
Not sure what kind of wireframe you're after, but I attach two possible options, created out of a NurbsParaboloid (from the create->nurbs menu). One uses repeated NurbsExtractPatchCurve applications to get a series of (exact) curves on the surface, the other uses NurbsPolygonizePatch to get an (approximate) polygon representation of the paraboloid.
Cheers,
Bart

Hi Bart!
Thank you soooo much for help! The first one is just what I wanted. May I ask you how did you get that ¨NurbsPolygonizePatch¨ option?

The steps to create the file are:
- In the main menu bar, Create->Nurbs->NurbsParaboloid
- Right-click in the viewport, and select MeshModifier->NurbsPolygonizePatch
Currently, most power of K-3D is hiding in this right-click menu, or the Modify main menu. For quicker access, you can also assign hotkeys.
Regards,
Bart
