I need to build an inner space in the shape of half a torus (like a bagel cut in 2 for spreading) - or tather much more accurate - a Bundt cake. Ultimately it would be exported to autocad where it would serve as a basis for home plans. So I must be able to control wall thickness.
The thing is I don`t need it to to be an exact torus but rather an ellipse based torus - sort of an elongated bagel, and i need it to be high - like and I need to be able to control and the following factors:
1. radius or area of the `hole` inside the bagel
2. width of the floor of bagel tube itself
3. I need to control the height of this half torus or bundt cake

What would be the best method of going about it ?
