I am not getting faces on certain arcs, but am on others. It is symmetrical in which ones do and don’t, but I can’t find the problem. Can anyone help? I have tried making sure all the points are connected, but I have to be missing something. I am uploading the file in case anyone wants to take a look at it.

The arcs don’t lie on the same plane. You can see that if you orbit around to look edge on.

Might be easier if you start with a rectangle drawn between the top and bottom rings on which you draw the arcs. Then erase what you don’t need.

You could also try a different approach to modeling this. Maybe start with a cross section for a Follow Me profile and a circle for a path. Model “cutters” (shown in blue) to intersect with faces and then erase what isn’t the gauge.

Brilliant, I didn’t even notice. Thank you.

Here’s a quick gif to demo how the underlying geometry works in a case like this.

By joining the correct dots a face will form.
