Meshing of tube bundle

I am trying to mesh a tube bundle for a heat exchanger in ANSYS Workbench 12. A straight tube with no bends is easily meshed while one with 180 degree bends is not meshed and gives an error.

Is there a different way to go about this for a tube with bends? Plus i am using the automatic meshing feature.

Thanks in advance! :)

Try the "sweep" method and select the source and target... It should be able to handle it.
