I am having difficulty doing something properly.
This is the model I am working on
For the green section, I created an arc that runs from the larger circle at the bottom to the smaller circle at the top, using the arc: start, end, direction at start command . I used the Quadrant and Near snaps. I then did Pipe with 1 mm diameter at the top and 1.3 mm at the bottom. The transitions of the green section look just the way I want them.
Since I need two more like these on either side of the center band I tried to do something similar. I have tried several things. First I tried to run an arc between these two circles, again using arc: start, end, direction at start, and Quadrant and Near snaps, after which I tried to make a pipe again.
The result was not smooth, and not want I want. (Red objects)
I also tried to create two circles and a connecting arc,
after which I ran the Sweep 1 command, which gave me this result.
The transition on the top is again not what I want.
What am I doing wrong, and what do I need to do to do this properly?
I have added the file in case anyone want to take a look at it.
