Creating a Revolve

Always begin your creo session by selecting your working directory

If you select working directory at the beginning, that folder will be the default location when you try to open files, as well as when you save files. It makes everything a lot easier if you select your working directory first.

For help opening/saving/downloading files see basics, for help creating an extrude see basic solids.
