Various surfaces of revolution such as spheres, hemispheres, domes, cones can be created and edited using the context menu items of the Right Mouse Button and Draw and Edit menus.

The Bezier Surface of Revolution tool is accessible from the Right Mouse Button Context and Draw menus once a Bezier curve is selected as a profile curve on the XZ/Red Blue/Front/Backplane.

You can edit a newly drawn surface in the editing tool once the surface has been created.
