Hi,
I have tube with non circular Ends (one end is circular and the other is out of plane elliptical. see the figure.)

My Problem is with the association for the blocks. I am not able to associate the edge to the curves for the intermediate blocks that I create since I do not have the curve Points.
My idea is to split the curve and associate it with the edges. But in the current proifle I just have 2 curves and i Need to associate that with 4 edges.
I cannot create an Offset curve, since my geometry is not circular at the Ends.

it gives an error about the tolerances.
If I create two more cruves of the Profile, I can split the curve and associate them with the edges.

Well, By curves.. I mean here the Profile that has been swept.

Firstly, I Need to know whether I am thinking right !! If yes, how can I get two more of the curves for assocation ?
If no, what else should I do ?

Sorry for mis-organinzing the question.
Have a nice day !!
Regards
Chaitanya.

Use the geometry tab for this. you can split curves by creating a number N of points in that curve. There is also a way to generate curves from surfaces. The geometry is your best bet, I'm not in front of my ICEM right now. but the icons are enough intuitive to do that by your own...

I tried the geometry tool bar. The problem is my sweep profile is not been projected on two circles. Its a circle and an ellipse. So, it gives an error of tolerance and cannot project it.
