    Welcome to the forum @alex_dri !

    I took a look at your document and found a couple of issues. As you can see in the screenshot below, the guide curves did not intersect the profiles:

    Next, the guides had to be split in two using a Split tool in the sketch:

    And now it all checks out!

    Thanks,TimRice!
    I would never have guessed about split guide line)
    Also same sketch has only 2 handles(start and finish point) to control curvature,how can  I get handles in other points?

    Currently spline control handles can only be placed at the start and end points.

    If you make a bunch of splines, you can apply a coincident constraint on their endpoints to attach them, and then a tangent constriant to make them tangent to each other.  Then each point will have a handle:



    One thing that may not be obvious in the gif is that I am double clicking to end each spline segment, which also keeps the tool open to sketch the next spline segment.
