Hoop with round diameter

modeling
#1

Hi Community,

I need to shape several objects with round diameter and in ring/loop/hoop form.

I manage to make a circle, push it into 3D and pull a smaller one from it inside. This leaves me with roughly the shape I need, but it has not the diameter I want.

I manage to produce a pole by pulling it from a circle, but this only leaves me with straight objects with round diameters. I need round ones.

I see this is a super basic question, but I hope someone can get me started with this.

@Frisbeeman, the real solution is in post 2 and 3, (Anssi and Box). You ought to mark one of their posts, not your own.

Edit: “Solution” correction to post … 3
