Upload the SKP file.

Do you have things set up correctly with the Component and the straight line parallel to the red axis?

It isn’t very clear what shape you want to achieve, I can get this one from your model.


But what is important is the relative positions of all three parts.
Are you trying to bend it along the curve?

thanks for your efforts , i actually want to get a building roof which looks like this one , the 2 curves are highlighted with red

For a shape like that you’re better off making the roof shape and bending that. Also note that the arrow keys will change the predicted shape. As you see here I hit the Up arrow to change the orientation.
