Does anyone know of a workaround for not being able to revolve a 3D sketch? Projecting that 3D sketch onto a plane is not a valid solution because it won't re-create the same surface.

Thanks

Actually, I'm more interested in revolving a 2D sketch around an axis that is not in the same plane. I'd like to revolve Sketch 1 around Axis 1 in the attached file....

I'm not so interested in the revolved surface, but in the intersection of the revolved surface and Plane 1.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Nevermind. I solved it using a 3D sketch and a Surface-Sweep. I've attached the soln in case anyone else needs it.

Thanks

I've done it this way before:

- Sweep a circle with a straight line as the main guide curve.
- Use the 3D sketch as a guide curve.
- Constrain the circle section center to the straight line guide curve, and constrain the perimeter of the circle to the guide curve using a point.
- Constrain the point coincident with the perimeter and also to the guide curve using
*pierce*constraint.

p.s. Sorry that I can not look at your example due to being a version behind.
