The Revolve command creates a feature by revolving one or more sketch profiles about an axis through any angle measuring between zero and 360°. The axis of revolution can be part of the profile or offset from it. The profile and axis must be coplanar.
After invoking the Revolve command, both the Direct Manipulation in-canvas display and the title bar of the Revolve dialog box appear in the graphics window. The dialog box is in a collapsed state, but can be expanded by clicking the down arrow near the top of the dialog box. For this tutorial, we use the Direct Manipulation in-canvas display and mini-toolbar to revolve the sketch profile rather than use the dialog box options.
