I want to create a tight bend, i foutn that i can use Bridge Edge Loops to do so. But this creaates some self intersection. How can i remove the selfintersecting part and make the mesh cleaner?

Image illustrates the issue.

Rather than trying to do it yourself, Blender (2.8+) comes with an addon built in for producing extra mesh objects including pipe joints. Search 'extra' in the Addons section under Preferences and check 'Add Mesh: Extra objects' enter image description here

You'll then see an extra section on the 'Add menu' with a Pipe Joints section: enter image description here

Add an Pipe Elbow and change the settings to what you need:enter image description here Then add a Solidify modifer, adjust its thicknes and apply it to give you the final object: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Ok. Probably best to use the spin tool in that case. See youtube.com/watch?v=VC89Qfw9pkg from about 6.30 onwards. $\endgroup$
