Making a Surface with 3 Curves forming a Triangle

I have 3 curves that form a triangle in space (not in one plane). How do I make a surface with these 3 boundaries? I've tried Surface > By Boundary, but I can't get it to work.



Thanks in Advance!

In boundaries mode of surface creation,

use 2 curves in one direction and that single curve in onother.

you can use a point instead of fourth curve. u use two curves in first directions, and then one curve and one point/vertex in second direction (chain seletion option must be selected)

Why can you not just create > surface > new > flat > and sketch the triangle? This would be the easiest thing to do, and you won't have the problem of the surface crashing at one point.

Use boundary surface.



For the first direction select curve-point and select one of the sides as base and then select the opposite vertex.



For the second direction select the two remaining sides..
