In this article of Mechanical Base, we will show you how to use Revolve command in Siemens NX to obtain revolved geometries. Revolve command is a very essential command as Extrude command in Siemens NX and the general CAD softwares like Siemens NX. Soi you will learn about how to use Revolve command in Siemens NX in efficient way and hoe to use the all features of Revolve command in Siemens NX.

To obtain a revolved geometry, you need to click on the pop-up menü as shown by red arrow above then click on the Revolve command as shown by red box above in Siemens NX.
After entering to the Revolve command in Siemens NX, you need to select the revolved curve as shon by red arrow, then you need to revolving axis as shown by blue arrow above. The axis need not to belong to the primary skecth, you could select whateer you want as axis.
In the Limits tabi, you can select a method either value or Until selected. If you select until selected, Revolve action will start from the selected feature. It is valid for the End option. If you select Until Selected in End option, the revolving operation will end at the selected feature in Siemens NX.
For example we entered value of stating and ending angles, you can see the result of the entered values as shown by blue arrows above. Also you can adjust the Boolean options for Revolve in Siemens NX.
None: Default option for boolean in Siemens NX Revolve command.
Unite: If the created 3D geometry from revolving process intersects with other 3D geometry in drawing scheme, you can select Unite for boolean then select the other geometry to Unite two of them in Siemens NX.
Subtract: If the created 3D geometry from revolving process intersects with other 3D geometry in drawing scheme, you could carve out the other 3D sketch by using the obtained revolved 3D geometry by selection this.
Intersect: If the created 3D geometry from revolving process intersects with other 3D geometry in drawing scheme, you can only obtain the intersection geometry of two of these geometries.
