    Pipes with round corners - what's easiest?

    I need to make cylindrical pipes with round corners, what's the easiest way to do this? The corners seem hardest - I don't have to make a row of rings and pivot them all do I?

    Also, how do I draw a drill bit? I can't do the twists!

    Any help would be great.

    The easiest way is to make a circle in the lathe editor - away from the centre as the arc of the bend determines and then adjust the sweep angle to the amount of bend you require.

    Thanks. It's the drill bit that's hardest though, I can't do the twist.

    I also can't make a moebius strip, although can anyone?

    moebius strip, in swift? not saying it would be possible solely within swift3D, but for the sake of keeping my sanity, I'd use 3ds max.

    I could make a moebius strip by making hundreds of thin objects and lining them up. And yes, this would send me mad.

    Funny thing is, somebody made a drill bit and posted a pic of it a few months ago. I can't find the thread.
