- The Surface Revolve command works very, very…similar to your standard Revolves inside of SOLIDWORKS…with the exception that it doesn't need to create a volume,…it's only creating a flat, or curved surface.…To get started, let's go ahead and click on Sketch,…and start a sketch.…Now I'm gonna choose the front plane for that.…Notice it spins around so I'm looking…straight down at that sketch.…And go ahead and choose the Spline command.…I'm just gonna draw out a couple of…cool little spline shapes here,…and then I'm just gonna drag them around,…and make sure that I've got the shape I'm looking for.…
I'm gonna create kind of like a little bit of a bowl shape,…so I wanna grab this one here,…I wanna bring this one down over here,…give it a little bit of hips, and there it is.…OK, now grab a center line, just like anything in Revolves,…we always need something to revolve them around.…I'm gonna go ahead and choose a center line,…click it on the origin here and make that it's vertical.…If it's not you can always go ahead and right-click on this…
