How can I make arcs very fast?

Hi,

What is the fast way to make a cylindrical arc like this:

I know, that I can add this image as background in blender 3d and then add a cylinder and edit this in edit mode, but I want a fast way to do this.

Somebody has an idea?

Thanks!

draw a curve for this shape then add a bevel curve

happy bl

Or use different radius for the curve object (Alt+S in Edit mode in 2.79, don’t know in 2.8).

To model it symmetrically duplicating and mirrroring can work just fine.
