Revolving edges that are not on same plane creates sheet body, I want a solid body

I'm trying to revole some edges of a solid body but these edges are not all on the same plane. Because of this the result is a sheet body, but I want a solid body. How can I get a solid body from this operation?

Your file appears corrupt so I can not understand exactly what you want.
Try with the selection option Face Edges.

Hmm.. 7Zip seemed to store the file with no name or something.

Anyway I've attached a WinZip file instead..

Select the three faces with the option Face Edges, see image.

Wow. Why does that work and simply picking the boundary edges not work??

I'll mark your answer as the solution, but I'm not sure it will actually solve my overall problem:

 

The actual revolve in question is inside a UDF which I add using some NXOpen code. During the add of the UDF I have to specify the geometry to produce the revolve, Currently I pass in a single spline that defines the outer profile similar to my example part. I'm not sure how I can pass in FaceEdges...

I'll have to investigate that.

 

Thanks anyway, it might get me to a solution in the end.
