modelling a bent pipe
I want to model a solid pipe that is curved and i know the equation of that curve. I need this solid model to simulate fluid flow through this pipe. what is the best way to create this solid pipe.

This is what i did:

I imported "formatted point data" in design modeler and created a curve on a plane using these data points. I sketched a circle on a plane normal to the first plane and I tried to sweep this circle along the curve but design-modeler wouldn't let me select this curve as sweep path ( I suppose the reason is that the sweep path has to be a sketch and not a curve) .
Does anyone have solution to this problem?? Thanks for any help
