Revolving Object

Hey guys I'm somewhat experienced in Creo but I haven't used the program in a year or so.  I've created a stent design that I would like to revolve in order to create the cylindrical shape, but I can't.  When I try to revolve the surface, it tells me that there are no geometric entities in the area or something like that.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong because I am setting an axis of rotation as well.  Any help would be appreciated.  I'll attach the part file as well.

Re: Revolving Object

Hi,

your model is created in educational Creo version. It is not possible to open it in commercial Creo version.

Posting a screenshot may help if we can't open the model.

Only thing I can think of is all sketch entities have to be on the same side of the axis of rotation.

If you are trying to get the results as in image from Actual, you can use Toroidal Bend. There are many videos available for this feature... one of them is at

Where would I be able to find this tool in Creo 5?

Re: Revolving Object

You could, but unless you're bending it in 2 directions, I'd use a spinal bend of a flat surface, THEN add a thickness to it.
