    Integral Rotations

    For the final project in my AP Calc class, we have to devise a perfume bottle by coming up with an equation and rotating it around the x-axis in order to come up with the shape of the bottle. For presentation purposes, I thought it may be nice to have a 3D model of the perfume bottle. I was wondering if there was a applet or program with which I could graph the equation and make the rotation.

    I think Mathcad(Maple) can do that...as well as Mathematica

    Is there a free program I could use instead? Also, how would I go about making a figure? Any tutorials?
