About a Revolved Cut
Use the Revolve tool to remove material by revolving a sketched section around a centerline.
To create a cut, use the same angle options as for protrusions.
For solid cuts, use closed sections.
For cuts created with Thicken, you can use both closed and open sections.
While defining a cut, you can switch between feature attributes by clicking the following buttons:
Remove Material—Switches between cut and protrusion.
Flip—Switches the side from which material is removed.
  Thicken Sketch—Switches between solid and thin cut.
