Thank you so much Hardy. It is now days and days that I am trying to do it following the "How to" from the 3D modeling of the Inventor program. It was absolutely unsuccessful and impossible. 2 Errors: "Impossible to build a Revolution"- "The revolution axis cut the outline" Hardy, Your way is so simple. Why Autodesk don't include it in their help menu? amazing. Michel from Brussels.
