Creating revolved surfaces

You can create a surface of revolution, which is a three-dimensional body that approximates the surface generated by rotating a two-dimensional profile around an axis. You select the two entities that define the profile and the axis. You also specify the starting angle and the number of degrees to revolve the profile.

Revolving the profile 360 degrees creates a closed body.

To create a revolved surface

  1. Advanced experience level
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Revolved Surface.
    • On the Draw 3D toolbar, click the Revolved Surface tool ().
    • Type revsurf and then press Enter.
  3. Select the entity to revolve.
  4. Select the entity to be used as the axis of revolution.
  5. Specify the starting angle.
  6. Specify the number of degrees to revolve the entity.



Select the entity to be revolved (A) and the axis of revolution (B).

The resulting revolved surface mesh.
