This is one if the things solid edge does better than just about any other software. Any profile, any path, it will correctly go around the corners. The only gotcha is if you end up with geomotry where a cuved surface is tangent to another part of the result.
maybe it is due to the time but I can't realize what You are describing.
Do You have one or more picture or the part to upload here?
And as answered already, the Frame button is found under Extras in ASM
I guess the crucial information, I left out was, that with my "solution" finally I was describing a process to generate the tubing-frame in the "par"-mode, not in the ".asm"-mode.
Yes, in the mean-time with the hint of trikefreak I found the "Frame" (= "Rahmen") under Tools (="Extras") in the german version of Solid Edge. Right now I was successfull going this way You suggested. It is indeed much more practical than using the ".par"-mode. Finally the frame I generated this way is a ".asm"-file. I don't know if it was better to have the generated frame as a ".par"-file. But I guess I have to take this ".asm"-file as the assembly I have created anyway. Or would You suggest to transform it into a ".par"-file, if that was possible at all?
no keep it as ASM is the easiest way to handle with.
But my request before was to see why the part mode didn't work.
I would like to see Your sketches and try to solve this too.
welcome, so finally was this the solution to Your request?
But don't forget to upload Your original part with sketch if possible.
It would be fine to see what was wrong there to give an answer for all of us.
I enclose a video showing my first approach to the problem.
The path is the rectangular, the cross-section is the circle in a plane perpendicular to the rectangular.
When I start the guided protrusion, the rectangular doesn't seem to be accepted as a path, as I don't get the chance to choose select the cross-section.
there are several infos I have seen in Your video to which I would like to say some words:
If you put your cross section sketch along one of the sides of the rectanglular path, instead of the corners, it should work. The cross section sketch does not have to contact the path sketch
