 June 16, 2003, 16:29 Re: 3D Bend Creation #2 ap Guest   Posts: n/a I think you can create the U by sweeping a circular surface and then adding the two straight pipes, as follows: 1) Create a circumference having the same radius of the pipe, having its center in the origin of axis. 2) Create an arc of 180° uniting the centers of the two cylinders. You can create the center of the second cylinder by making a vertex. 3) Sweep the circumference along the arc. 4) Create the first pipe using the cylinder tool. 5) Copy it translating it on the free base of the U. 8) Unite the three blocks you have. Maybe it's not the best solution, but it should work. Hi ap

Create your surface section, and place the edge at the center of your section. Finally sweep face with this edge. __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider
