Exaggerated radius but see attached.


Please include in your post which INV version you are running so people with older INV versions don't waste time downloading the INV file if they have an older version.

I didn't make any attempt to optimize this (I noticed your first sketch wasn't constrained and appeared to be an AutoCAD import), but here is another technique using Extrude - Intersect rather than Revolve - Cut.
