Here a video about how to use the mesh ( OBJ file ) for creating a Freecad solid model
That's the way to go.
I hadn't seen this post, and have modeled it too. I attach my solution as well, because I solved the issue with the tangent differently and it is made in PartDesign, in case the tubes at the tip should be part of the solid. Then adding further things could be easier in PartDesign.
In the mesh these cylinders are not
connected, is this on purpose?
An additional note: Willem, you stopped the polyline when it came to the arc. Please try the M-key for different continuation modes.
I have removed the mesh, it would ave inflated the model from 37KB to nearly 800KB.
