Is it possible to draw a profile by endpoint connected lines and then create a revolved solid?


This is possible to create a revolved solid using endpoint connected lines for the profile.  This can be done in both Synchronous and Ordered modes.  In either mode, create the profile/sketch of the endpoint connected lines that represent the cross section desired.  In Synchronous select the cross section and change the 1st option from Extrude to Revolved. Define the axis of revolution and the number of degrees for the revolution.  Same thing occurs in ordered mode but in the profile/sketch you define the axis of revolution at that point. Hope this helps.
