I've been having trouble with the seed surface that was given to us. It will select the whole surface when I click on it normally, but when I try to use the paneling tools on it, only part of the surface will select. I tried the approach Calvin used, where he created contour lines from certain slices of the surface, and then lofted between them to recreate the shape. But I kept getting funny shapes when I did this.
So I went ahead and just created a shape that I would like to panel across the surface. I used a small rectangular connection at each interface. This connection would clamp down and hold each larger piece together.
