Error in Axi symmetric model.

While trying to initiate my axi-symmetric model, I receive an error message like this,

"non-positive volume exists"

When I change the "symmetry" to a "wall" or other type of boundary, the model works.
Can anybody help to sort out.

Any help is appreciated in advance........

Thanks and regards......

when you create geometry in gambit make sure the axis of rotation is placed on x coordinate. hopefully it works out.

I did as you said and it works.
But there are some other errors coming in.
Trying to figure out.
Thank you krisp..........:)
