I tried with bevel, but I can only do one side of the object. Do you have idea how to make whole object?

You could use your geometrical pattern as background blueprint, then:

  • Create a circle, extrude inwards (as suggested by the other answers, the Spin or Screw tools might be more convenient ways to create the initial shape):

enter image description here

  • Only keep a segment and delete its inner faces:

  • Extrude upwards, don't forget to recalculate the normals:

enter image description here

  • Give it thickness with the Solidify modifier (enable the Even Thickness option), or altE to Extrude along Normals and enable the Offset Even option in the Operator box:

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you a lot, this is a most helpful way. I made whole object from full circle... $\endgroup$ – Stf May 1 '20 at 16:31

Just to add to Moonboots' nice answer.

For precise angles (38,012 in this case), you can use the Screw Modifier.
Following steps are the same as in his answer (extrude and solidify).

    $\begingroup$ yes you're right, Screw or Spin might be better to begin with ;) $\endgroup$ – moonboots Apr 21 '20 at 12:50

This method that I used to create this shape might not be the best but it works at least

First add a plane, change the size of it and rotate it 90 degree ( on Y axis in my case )

Plane



Now go to edit mode, select Spin tool and change the settings how ever you want:

Spin tool

the higher the steps are, the smother it gets

Spin tool settings

now you can back to object mode, duplicate you object and change it (you can set the origin point in the middle of the object so its easier) :

duplicate

make changes

now you can add boolean modifier to your first object and select your second object with the eye droper tool

Boolean modifire

And there you go, I forgot to take a picture of it but I hope it helped!
