revolving a cutting profile (Inventor 2013)

I migrated to 2013 last week (from 2012).  I have a welded part which consists of only two items: a hub and a plate.  I brought in that welded piece into another file which is going to take care of the machining.  I machined one side without any issues.  The second side refuses to machine the back of the plate.  It does everything else but will not cut into the back of the plate.  I don't know why.  Can someone please help me to figure out why?

Please find attached the part I am trying to machine 60077B which is made of 60077F which in turn is made of 50176 & 50204.  The final thickness of the plate is supposed to be 1" currently it holds its ground at 1.063".

In 60077B, right click on Revolution 2 and select "Add Participant" then select the plate that you want to cut.

That worked, great thank you.  Any reason why Inventor was doing that?
