    How do you control the polycount on a REVOLVEDSHELL? RESOL and TOLER don’t seem to have any effect.

    Hi, try REVOLVEDSHELLANGULAR. Does it do what you need?

    I gave this a go, but not quite the results I was looking for. I need to reduce the polycount, but still have a smooth appearance. Similar to what a REVOLVE will look like. See attached images.

    Maybe REVOLVEDSHELLANGULAR{2} with status 2?

    No – same result. There doesn’t seem to be a way to smooth the edges, like you can do with a REVOLVE, without massively increasing the polycount.
