Revolve Only Shows 180° Cut-out

I've been working on the revolve and I noticed the revlove only shows 180° cut-out not 360° complete cut. Am I missing something.

Can't tell from your video, but it appears that your axis of revolution is not at the center of the cylinder.


Thanks,

yea, agree with ken,  it looks like the cut is 360 but has left a sliver face on the one half of the part making it appears to not be 360 from the outter faces.  but, it appeared that looking into the cut that there was materail removed... 

 

For furture reference: it's probably best to show video of your feature creation not just the result... much can be learned by seeing how you created the feature.

[ Edited ]

also a 360 revolved cuttout only needs one side of the cutout to be drawn then the centre line of the cylinder to be choosen as the axis, in your case you could have got away with just drawing a circle on the left hand edge at the correct dia and drawing a construction line on the centre axis for the revolve axis.

I believe the symmetrical profile being referred to is actually the Live Section created auto"magic-ly" when creating a sync revolve.

Still believe there is a sliver face on half the part, most likly due to the center of rotation being offset.?

The striped orange and grey surface indicates you have an identical or close to identical surface overlay in the area that wasn't cut, meaning you have more problems than just a revolved cut that you didn't center properly. I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish, but you could have done this in one feature with a revolved protrusion......
