Make pipe end round


#1

Hi there,

could anyone please help me with my problem?
I have created this pipe and now I would like to round the end. Like a bowl on top of the circle. I have tried to make a bowl on top of it but somehow it doesn’t work.

Here is the picture:

Any other solutions?

Try scaling it up by a factor of 10 or 100 and then run Follow Me. Scale back down afterward. You’ll need to put in the face for the sector you’re using as the profile. And, when you get finished, make sure you correct the face orientation. Blue should be on the inside.

Hi Dave,

thanks for your help. It worked perfectly, here is the result:

Looks a bit strange but Solid Inspector didn’t find any errors.

After the Follow Me operation you used to make the bend, the end circle was exploded. Select the geometry, right click on it and choose Soften/Smooth. That should help to makit look less weird.

And then reverse the faces so you have the white front faces out.

Looks fine now, perfect!
