Body of Revolution: Introduction


The Body of Revolution component is very handy when you want to make an axisymmetric shape based on a single cross-section. Some examples include engine nacelles, complex tanks or stores, or even unconventional shapes like a candlestick or football. Note that by definition, you may not adjust or ‘squash’ this component to make a more realistic engine nacelle. This component is purely axisymmetric similar to a “Revolve” CAD operation.
