Autodesk Inventor – Revolve

Source: knowledge.autodesk
Revolve creates a feature or new solid body by rotating one or more sketched profiles around an axis. The first feature is the base feature.

If you create an assembly feature, only the solid output and cut operations are supported. Revolved assembly features can cut through other parts.
You can create a surface from a revolved profile, and then use it as a termination plane for other features, or a split tool for a split part.
The profile can be revolved through any angle measuring between zero and 360 degrees around an axis. The axis of revolution can be part of the profile or offset from it. The profile and axis must be coplanar.
