There is a simple explanation for the bicubic_patch : That object only 
have a surface, it have zero thickness.
The same will happen with the triangle primitive.

Even if you have an union of them forming a completely closed shape, 
they'll never have an interior.

What would be required is the possibility to integrate bicubic_patch in 
a mesh.
