Yeah, it looks like it's building a wireframe when you use the 'revolve' tool. Here are some screen shots:

But it looks like file type options are all 2D when I go to save.

I know there was an internet tool to check the file quality or run conversion or something as well. I checked the wiki and couldn't find anything -- if it's there, point me at it.

Not having much luck finding info online on Illustrator and 3D printing, so maybe if I work from the other end I'll get better results.
