Thx Mr. Brutzman for your engagement.

In fact, Ayam is the first tool i found which actually can export a .x3d
file containing a "NurbsPatchSurface"-Node.
Unfortunately Ayam lacks in importing files (see list). The only way i got a
NurbsPatchSurface, was to model a complete new surface in Ayam itself. 

I´ve updated my list. 
thx again.

wondering if anyone has tried this tool?

Ayam is a free open-source 3D modeling environment for the RenderMan
interface with X3D import and X3D export.


>  Ayam is a free 3D modelling environment for the RenderMan interface,
distributed under the BSD licence.
> The current stable version is 1.20, released 20. Mar 2012.
> Ayam currently runs on Unix (Linux, IRIX, FreeBSD tested), Win32
(Win95-Win2000, XP, 7), and Mac OS X (Aqua and X11).
> Ayam features at a glance:
>     RIB (RenderMan Interface Bytestream) export and import.
>     Support for NURBS curves and (trimmed) NURBS surfaces, Boxes, Quadrics
(Sphere, Disk, Cylinder, Cone, Hyperboloid, Paraboloid, and Torus), CSG,
MetaBalls, Patch Meshes, Polygonal Meshes, and Subdivision Surfaces.
>     NURBS modelling includes approximating and interpolating curves as
well as extrude, revolve, sweep, birail, skin and gordon objects with caps,
holes, and bevels.
>     First modelling environment to support Subdivision NURBS.
>     Custom objects that may freely implement their representations (using
OpenGL and RIB) and even small GUIs to edit their type specific parameters
may be written by the user and dynamically loaded at runtime.
>     Scripting interfaces: Tcl, JavaScript; Script objects.
>     Misc: instancing, arbitrary number of modeling views, object
clipboard, independent property clipboard, console, n-level undo.
>     File formats (r/w): RIB, DXF, 3DM, 3DMF, OBJ, X3D.

all the best, Don
