    Default Need Solid Modelling Help

    New to Gibbscam. Using 2016. What I am attempting to do is to revolve some geometry that I have imported from AutoCAD LT 2017. The part is cylindrical. I am able to select the geometry on the imported drawing and "Revolve" it, creating a single solid cylindrical object that looks pretty close. My issue is that I don't know how to create the part with an inside diameter also, as opposed to it being a complete solid. I would like, when I "Revolve", for the inside diameter to be established as well as the outside. Im fairly certain that there is something that I am not doin correctly. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you have solids just define the circle which represents the bore and extrude thru to remove it.

    Do the tap drill thru then,
    I go to a CAD site which has the bolt and fasteners CAD modeled,
    and download the solid then subtract it from you other model.
    Are you doing single point threading or ? do you need a specific thread size?

    Been doing this too long
