Can I create surfaces from circular tube cross section in Design modeler?

      It will be helpful if someone find the solution. I need it for my project work. The project is based on ansys Aqwa. So i need surface body to import the structure in to hydrodynamic diffraction.

      If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to extend the 2D circular section to create a 3D body. Is that correct?
      If yes, you can execute extrude operation on the edges/faces of your interest.
      If no, please elaborate for us to understand properly, perhaps with the help of an illustration.

      Thank you Nikhil for your concern It's a jacket structure as shown above. I don't know how to extrude all the members of the jacket.
      In most of the journal they said that they have used pipe element to design the jacket structure, but they don't explain how to use it.Could you please explain how to use pipe element in hydrodynamic diffraction.
