How do I build this odd pipe in SketchUp?

It changes diameter from one end to the other and squishes in the middle while bending.

The Curviloft plugin by Fredo6 probably would do the trick. Start with a few segments for the circles at the start and once the shape lofts nicely, increase the segmentcount.


@maxB has got it right! Couple of curves based on the profile, then a few ellipses (or is it elipsi?) based on the side views, and Curviloft does the rest!


This looks great. I have to load the extension.
