To Create a Revolved Surface
1. Click Restyle > Analytical Surface > Revolve. The RevolSurface dialog box opens.
2. Click the required check boxes for defining the surface:
Full—Creates the complete revolved surface of 360 degrees.
Domain—Uses the selected domain for creating the surface.
3. Select the references for the revolved surface.
Coordinate system—Selects the coordinate system. This coordinate system is used as a reference for manipulating or moving the surface.
Origin point—The center of the base circle that the revolved section forms after revolution is the origin of the revolved surface. For analytical surfaces, if you want to define the origin point before the creation of the surface, you can only select datum points. After creating the surface, to modify the origin point, you can select any location on the facet for defining the origin point.
The surface is translated along its axis such that in the new position, the origin point of the surface and the facet point lie on the same plane that is normal to the axis.
Restyle displays the x-, y-, and z-coordinates of the origin point in the respective Origin point coordinates boxes. You can change these coordinates to move the origin point and the surface.
Direction—Selects a datum plane or a planar surface as a directional reference where required. If you select an axis as a reference, Restyle uses it as the axis of revolution and creates a section curve or a curve chain. To limit the surface, Restyle prompts you to select two points on the curve. If you do not select any points, Restyle uses the entire curve for creating the surface. The direction of rotation is defined by the direction of the axis and the right-hand rule. The orientation of the surface depends upon the directional reference.
4. Under Direction angular dimensions, change the angle that the revolved surface makes with the direction vectors to rotate the surface in the required direction.
5. Click to select the created section curve and modify it using Sketcher tools to fit the surface better. After successfully modifying the section, Restyle does not retain any references used for dimensioning or aligning. This means that if you modify the section again, it displays the whole section dimensioned with reference to a coordinate system located over the origin point.
6. Click OK.
