You have talked about Tools > Revolve ‘a Body’ and did not receive a response directly related to Rotate, may I correct this now. It may, hopefully, help others also?
Firstly a Body is always created from a Closed Sketch, no Closed Sketch = no Body.
Taking a similar Profile to your own:
It is not possible to select the entire Profile, even if the Centre Line is Exchanged for a Construction Axis, S3D warns ‘cannot determine the spun geometry’.
The options available are to choose either the Selected Option and Revolve about the Centre Line or choose the non Selected Option and Revolve about the Centre Line. This will of course deliver two differing ‘Pods’ so a method of combining them would be needed:
The real beauty of S3D [for me] is ‘doing things’ and that is the reason I attempt to replicate or resolve everything mentioned in this Forum, that I have not previously experienced.
While compiling this Post I realised that there was a simple method of combining that would certainly be an improvement on the last two ‘Pods’:
This arrangement of Profile 1 [previously Selected above], used in the 12:00; 03:00; 09:00: clock positions, and the Profile 2 [previously non Selected above], used in the 06:00 clock position.
The Tools > Loft Clockwise from 12:00 right hand side to the 03:00, 03:00 to 06:00, 06:00 to 09:00. 09:00 to 12:00 Lefthand side. Given a uniform shape flattened on the under belly.
If this proved a reasonable creation it could be joined using Tools > Union to the Wing?
Have some fun:
