Exactly what the title says. I need to model an object that looks something like a squashed egg.

 

The shape is elliptical, the length is 140mm, the width is 70mm and the height 30mm.

 

I tried to do it by creating an half ellipsis 140x35mm, revolve it and then use the flex feature to squash it but it didn't work, although I entered 40mm negative stretching, I end up with a weird height number of 22.27mm.

 

I would like to hear few different methods how I can achieve this.

 

Thanks in advance
