Revolve a closed sketch / composite curve by a given value and direction.
Important: Objects created by New > Revolve will be considered independent objects. Those created by Add > Revolve will be added to the active object. (If only one object exists in the file it is automatically active unless manually deactivated.) See Activate / Deactivate and Activating Objects.
Required Step 1
- If you enter Revolve immediately after creating a closed 2D composite curve or sketch, the entity is automatically included in Step 1.
- If you select a sketch that contains more than one closed curve sequence, all closed curve sequences will be extruded. In order for a sketch to be selected, however, it must contain only closed curve sequences.
Required Step 2
Select the axis of revolution. The axis can be defined by picking an edge, line, datum axis, UCS axis (pick a UCS axis), 2 points, or the axis through the center of a cylindrical face, arc or circle.
Required Step 3
