REVOLVE command (alias
REV) creates a solid or surface by rotating a linear or planar object around an axis. It starts by showing the same information and prompts for the selection of sections, as seen with

Command: REVOLVE Current wire frame density: ISOLINES=4, Closed profiles creation mode = Solid Select objects to revolve or [MOde]: Selection
We must then define the axis of revolution. By default, we can pick two points that define this axis, but other options are available as well. In the order we select, the points specify the positive angle direction by the right-hand rule.
