Importing a text file

When I enter one set of 2D points, Z, X, Y with Z's all zero, to create a line, when I import it, the line is not centered on the X axis.  So the result when I rotate around the X axis to create a solid is not the shape I am looking for.  Format looks like:

3d=false
fit=false
polyline=false

0,0,0.234
0,2.575,0.234
0,2.825,0.234
0,3.075,0.235
0,3.325,0.236
0,3.575,0.237
0,3.825,0.239
0,4.075,0.241

etc.

Not sure what I am doing wrong.  Thanks for anyone who can solve this for me.

Thanks for responding, still not sure why it is offset, but by putting in my own line for axis of rotation, was able to work around it.
Again, many thanks for your input.

According to the help files, you have done everything correctly. I tried, same result.

I would report this as a bug here, with a support ticket.

I have drawn out the text file as in the attachment using 'Cartesian Dimensions'. Is this the shape you want?
