Swept Cut along not regular pipe?


New member
Hi i have a pipe (or 2 pipes join together) and i need to make outer surface to be like a wave. I thought to use swept cut but as this is not close loop part it does not let me do it.
My test part screen shot is attached.

How can I make a "tool" and cut all outer diameters with this tool patterns? I have tool sketch on left side

Hope some one has an idea?
