Modeling 3D Tubing in Wildfire - step by step

Or maybe it would be better to

1 sketch what you want in one plane (curves)
2 then in an adjacent plane sketch the other curve.

Make sure you have a straight line on each side for both curves so your
sweep will work.

3. extrude one curve into a surface long enough for the other curve to hit
in next step.
4 project the second curve onto the recent extrude surface.

If you do all this in a skeleton part and copy geometry (top down design)
thats the most mature way to deal with large assemblies.

5 use that final curve to preform either a variable section sweep (surface)
or solid. A surface will give you quite a bit more control end the end but
thats a different story.

Steps 3 & 4 can be combined into one - select the 2 curves, then Edit >
Intersect (works like a charm if sketch planes are perpendicular)
