I am wanting to make something a little complex, like an animated ball bearing race. I started watching a great video tutorial by Don Cheke who is using Turbocad Platinum 2017 to create the initial model of the bearing. I could create the 2D profiles just as easily as Don, (in vid 1), but as soon as he moved to Vid 2, first 90 seconds or so, suddenly hit a brick wall...he has a tool called Revolve that turns his simple 2d profile drawings into an instant 3d circular bearing housing, complete with grooved runner! How do we Mac users do that????

On the Mac side, it's called the "Lathe Solid" tool.

Thanks Mitch, it works, but back to the drawing board on my profiles. Obviously not the same as Don Cheke's!
Thanks for taking the time and forbearance to answer what is an ignorant novice's question!
