to revolve you just draw your profile and an axis and then create form. pretty simple... the tools are on the main interface.Edited on: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 12:18:31 PM

the axis of the revolve has to be a seperate entity, sounds like revit is thinking your oultine is a closed loop for extrusion. extent the lines of the axis beyond the revolve profile.

"but when I do such athing it only results in extrusion ......" - I think you are "Joining" the "endpoints" of the Profile with the "endpoints" of the Axis.....
