I am using truespace 7.51 and for some reason I am having trouble finding the Convert to Plain Patch button. My truespace artist guide says it should be with the Convert to Polyhedron button under the NURBS Sweep Tools but for some reason it isn't there. Could someone help me out?

This one almost stumped me!
It is indeed missing from the default layout.

However, you can find it by using the 'Icon Finder'
(This opens a megatoolbar with all available icons.)

First, switch to Model tab.

Next, Expand the toolbar containing the NURBS tools by clicking on it's handle.

Then, open the megatoolbar by clicking the Icon Finder.

Finally, hold Control key while you drag the 'Convert NURBS object with construction history to plain patch' icon out and drop it into the NURBS section of the expanded toolbar. You'll see the cursor change to indicate that you are copying the icon.

Click the Icon Finder again to hide the megatoolbar.

That's it!
