Hi Nick, you should be able to select and then delete the curve that you used to create a revolve.

If you're having a problem with this, maybe you can post a .3dm example file? That would help me figure out what is going on in your case.

After you have created a revolve, there is a natural part of the revolved surface that looks really similar to the initial creating curve - that is the "seam edge" of the revolve.

Surfaces in MoI are in a certain sense like a rectangular sheet of paper. When you create a revolve it will create a surface that is configured similar to taking a sheet of paper and rolling it into a tube, so that 2 edges of the paper are now touching each other. That touching edge is the "seam edge" of the revolve and you can't delete that part, it is a built in part of the surface's trimming boundary.

- Michael

If you're satisfied with the revolve and you're certain you will not need to edit the object, then you can simply delete the curve.
If you still want to edit the revolved object, you need to keep the curve. You can hide it by just selecting it and using the "hide" button. If you need it later, just press "hide" again to select the object(s) that you want to make visible again.

Hope this helps.

Edit : it's difficult to be faster than Michael to post a reply, hehe ! ;-)
