although the framework for defining curves exists in the current BREPS module,
the ability of defining BREP solids from surfaces generated by convolution/revolution
or extrusion is not yet implemented; this also explains the lack of documentation...
It is something we plan to develop in future but we currently do not have resources
assigned for it, sorry.

Cheers, Gabriele
