you must place the sketch of the circle representing the section, and the path representing the curve, rigorously perpendicular to the origin.
So place first (it's not mandatory but it's better when you start) the circle section, in the XY plane for example, constrains the diameter and position OX and OY
In a perpendicular plane XZ for example, place the arc for the path, choose the center point of the curve. it is not necessary to specify the radius of the arc path, only its angle is important
you do the sweep that will be coming from the circle section
Then you use placement to place it in the right angle, and in the right place
This is done with the workshop "Part
With PartDesign, some will offer you the entire gas plant
Thanks for responding.
1) I think you mean to make the circle before the arc. The circle should be in the XY plane.
2) then make the arc in the XZ plane.
It seems like using placement is just eyeballing it. Unless you exactly how far the circle center is from the arc end-point in millimeters. If both circle and arc are made starting on the origin but in different planes, that might work.
Maybe that is what you meant here?:"So place first (it's not mandatory but it's better when you start) the circle section, in the XY plane for example, constrains the diameter and position OX and OY"
Otherwise. after 1 and 2 have been done, is there a way to use the point coincidence constraint to join the center of the circle to the end-point of the arc?
I don't quite get the "gas plant" reference.
