Create a new solid or add to an existing solid by revolving a 2D sketch about an axis. (To remove solid material, see Revolve Remove.)
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.
