I am attempting to model a PVC T-fitting and used the follow me tool on a circle along a L- shaped path. Then intersected it with a rectangular face on center to use left hand-side as a move/copy then flipped. To create the right-side and complete the T. I have made the fitting and it is a Solid Component in model but when I applied Soften Edges to remove lines added when off-setting the circle to make it a tube. It flattens out the top and bottom. Or if I un-check both or any combo of Smooth Normals/Soften Coplanar it is not as EXTREME but removes edges??

Looking for an explanation as to what is causing this effect. I have re-modeled it 3 time with same effect each time. I am ONLY guesting but does the number of sides of the circle have to do or is the reason behind this?? I am still learning and have along way to go, even though it is a SOLID. This is making me think it still is not right?? Any ideas or info on if the number of side applied is the cause. Tried the default 24-circle, then 48 this last is 90. Just confusing myself thinking about degrees and radients and 2 * PI
