Here is a start of one i dont have a bunch of time to make this work compleetly for you but you get the idea from it its a sweep you may have to fill the open part with another object or make it in two halfs.

Yes, create a Solid Revolve (of a semi-oval), not in elevation but in a plan view, make sure to change the end angle from 360° to 180°. Then create a solid void to control the height of the oval.....see images....

Erland....when making the solid void which option do u use when trying to control the height. ive been using just the regular extrusion and it makes it look like a saddle. and ive tried using the revolve. but that just doesn't work right.
