 Creating revolved surfaces in uMake is easy
 with the revolve tool.
 0:00:04.830,0:00:10.910
 First, start with a profile curve that you
 would like to transform into revolved shape.
 0:00:10.910,0:00:16.700
 Keep in mind that this profile curve should
 only be half of the full shape you want to create.
 0:00:16.700,0:00:20.440
 Next select the profile curve.
 0:00:20.450,0:00:24.890
 Then tap ‘Revolve’ From the side menu.
 0:00:24.890,0:00:30.020
 You will notice two blue handles with a dashed
 line between them appear at both ends of the
 0:00:30.020,0:00:32.420
 profile curve.
 0:00:32.420,0:00:37.390
 In addition you will notice a surface shape
 appear, but most likely it’s not exactly
 0:00:37.390,0:00:39.749
 what you want.
 0:00:39.749,0:00:44.780
 To change this shape and get the revolved
 surface exactly as you want it, you can move
 0:00:44.780,0:00:48.079
 the axis using the two blue handles.
 0:00:48.079,0:00:54.229
 Simply tap and drag each handle to move the
 axis of the revolved shape.
 0:00:54.229,0:01:01.399
 In the side menu you will notice options for
 the revolution angle, snap, and wireframe.
 0:01:01.400,0:01:06.020
 Revolution Angle lets you choose how much
 you want the surface to be revolved.
 0:01:06.020,0:01:12.460
 Snap will snap the axis to be perfectly vertical,
 horizontal or 45 degrees.
 0:01:12.460,0:01:18.460
 Wireframe will show a wireframe of the surface
 as you create the revolved surface.
 0:01:18.460,0:01:24.369
 Once you are done creating your revolved surface,
 tap the green check mark to exit the tool.
 0:01:24.369,0:01:29.380
 Try creating a bottle or simple glass to get
 a feeling for how you can work with the revolve
 0:01:29.380,0:01:31.440
 surface tool in uMake.
