Hi

I am working on a project I have to do for a course at my university. My Gambit skills are very moderate and I have got a problem that I hope you guys might help me with.
As you can see in the attachment, I have got a part of an egg which is a solid of revolution and I want to make a 3D volume of it. I have tried several things with the options sweep/revolve faces but it has not worked.
Do you know whats my mistake?

Thank you!!!

Anna

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
you may do something wrong: go in volume tools, and choose the revolve-faces.
you may choose the right parameter for the revolution
