Blend Three Rings Into a Y fitting

    An image would be good on the size, position and proximity of the three circles and the type of 'junction'

    like the first one you did, but one hole is 12 inch and the other two are 6, how  did you make it?

    Mine does not have the clean join lines. I used planes on the end of a Y line, with circles that were sweeped to center of Y.

    Hoping for the blend smoothness to create the same thing, but blend does not like to join 3.

    It joins one just fine like this, but I want a Y fitting to split a 12 into two 6.

    The simplest way is to use the cylinder tool:

    Draw three lines in whichever Y configuration you want, return to 3D mode, select all 3 lines, click the cylinder tool and specify the diameter.

     Et voila, It constructs the entire thing.

    You can always add rounds afterwards:

    Playing with it and this won't shell?

    This will work, thanks.

    Pull the Surfaces the opposite way to make Solids, so when you 'Blend' the two surfaces they will be 'Tangent' to each other. Pull/Blend one half. Move and copy 180°. Combine/Join. Shell. Pull line that joins the two 6" tubes.
