The vertexes are not aligned, you should redraw the sketches or use joincurve. Joincurve have a offset option now is need.
Corner break parameter can be used as well.

Hi Zolko and GlouGlou,
As you found out, the Twist parameter did not work with sketches that have more than one line segment.
Creating a join curve solves this by 1. creating a single curve and 2. moving the starting point to the top.

For those who do not know this trick and to get rid of the problem with the twist parameter, I have implemented Zolkos approach to reorder the line segments. The twist parameters will now reorder the line segments instead of the pole points of the lines. If you have 6 line segments, you can apply twists with a multiple of 60 degrees. I think this will work for most designs.

Check out the new version of the CurvedShapes Workbench.

Select the Sketch BottomFront and select BoundingBox in the View menu. Your base item BottomFront is bigger than the sides Sketch004 in y direction. This is why it is shrunk. To fix this, make a copy of Sketch004 and move the bars so they will cross the boundung box of BottomFront.
