1-Draw a polyline and click on finish.
2-Now Select "Revolve" tool click on polyline to create revolve.
3-Revolve isn't created.
4-Again draw a polyline right click and click on "Close".
5-Apply revolve tool on it this time revolve is created.
6-Revolve works fine for "Closed polyline".

It works if polyline is open. Just ACIS modeler cannot create and treat self-intersection object. You can try to create such object if revolve axis has intersection with selected polyline

For me, I get a hollow revolve if the profile is open.

In Platinum, if the profile is made of segments and is ‘open’ and "Use Compound Profile" is activated, you'll need to use "Finish Selection of Profile" before you can choose a revolve axis.
