Dear Sebastien
It was very useful, thanks. I want to draw a pipe elbow with wall thickness. Do you have any idea?

Well I was about to propose you to use a TopoDS_Face as a profile, but it seems it's not supported. Maybe I'm wrong I need to have a closer look or someone confirm us it can't work.
By the way une can build 2 pipe surfaces and close the solid creating 2 flat faces using this exemple : http://neweopencascade.wordpress.com/2014/03/01/post1/

Here is a way to achieve what you describe, maybe it's not the best way and any suggestions are welcome.

Hi Mohammand,
I think you can use BRepPrimAPI_MakeThickSolid to have a try.
You can also use a bigger Elbow to cut a smaller elbow. :-)

Best Regards,
Xing
