I have a drawing I am trying to produce but i am struggling with one part of it. So I am asking for help/advice on this.
So please see attached 2D drawing of the product and as you will see the contacts curve inwards at the ends but I cannot figure out how to do this, using Deluxe 2017, I know it probably a really easy fix in Pro but...
I have also attached my 3D file have produced so you can see the problem I am having.

Any suggestion will be gratefully received :)

James.   I don't know if this is the correct shape, as I only glanced at the pdf, and didn't bother with any sizes.

Its made from extruding the red and blue closed profiles, then Boolean intersecting.  Next I extruded the green and Boolean intersecting with the resultant object (this gives the rounded bottom edges).  Then extruded the cyan and subtracted it.  Lastly added the bent handle (magenta).

My two bits. I made a Spin with a 6mm radius of the body, then reduced the rotation angle to 12.12879°. This method will give you a smoother bend. It just needs some work to make the point.
