The **Degree** menu item is for selecting the
degree of a B-spline or a NURBS curve. If the selected curve type is
Bézier or rational Bézier,
**Degree** has no effect since the degree
is determined by the number of control points. The degree of this curve is
shown in this menu item.

Before a B-spline or a NURBS curve can be displayed, its degree (from 1 to 10)
must be selected with **Degree**. The
minimum degree and maximum degree of a B-spline or a NURBS curve is 1 and
10, respectively. The selected degree is shown in this menu item.
