I am designing a channel for the flow of water, it is a square channel having nozzles at entrance and exit. Inside it are some hurdles and cooling coils, I have designed the internal structure and now my main concern is to design the nozzle.

Like the title says, I want a geometry such as water enters from a circular hole and this passage meets the square channel at the other end. To be more clear, I want such an extrusion that its one end circular and other is a square.

Is this possible in ANSYS Design Modeler?

For reference I am attaching the sketch, this is what I want to extrude.



Side Note: I thought about using Revolution instead of Extrusion by making a sketch but the thing is other end of the extrusion will still be a circle while I need square.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Split the circle into as many segments as the other profile (4), then use Skin/Loft using the two sketches as profiles
