      You can Pull the circular edge around the Axis to make a bend with a circular cross-section.

      The Blend surface doesn't seem to maintain a circular cross-section at the 45 degree sweep angle.

      Can you elaborate please?

      Yes, the cross section is narrow

      I saw in your image an axis that is available. If that axis is not in the correct location create one that is.

      With the Select tool active (keyboard S) select the circular edge.

      Activate the Pull tool (keyboard P).  An onscreen menu will popup. Click the Axis button then select the axis.

      Drag the edge and see the bend surface revolve about the axis. Type in 90 in the popup angle field and hit enter to get a 90 degree bend surface.
