Shells – Set revolution angle for revolved shells

ARCHICAD 15 New Features – Shells
Set revolution angle for revolved shells

One setting that applies only to Revolved Shells is the Revolution Angle setting. The angle starts at the position where the Profile Polygon is shown, and is rotated around the Revolution Axis counterclockwise. So if we change its value to, for example, 180 degrees, its end at the Profile Polygon keeps its position, while the other end changes according to 180 degrees, which is half-circle.
Naturally, if we set the value to 360 degrees, that will complete the full circle of the Revolution.
