Thanks for your answer, your Bezier surface looks very nice, why
didn't you add it to vtk?

At first step I would like to implement a Bezier curve. I see that you
also decided to use vtkParametricFunction as a base class. I have some
"bad feelings about this".

Does your bezier surface algorithm can produce curves also?
