How do I curve a complex solid shape from it's current straight profile?

I have a complex shape that changes profile along it's length, that I now want to curve around a large radius curve. Can't see a way to do this.

    @chris_brown781... as Robert mentioned it usually helps if you post a link to your doc when asking for help.   That said you cannot "bend" a solid object once it is modeled.

    If you need an object to curve you need to model it that way from the start.

    Welcome Chris. Usually it is helpful to be able to peek into your document to see what's going on. If possible, please post a link. Your description sounds like the Sweep tool might be fitting. - Scotty

    @john_lopez363 Thanks for confirming my suspicions, however always good to hear from others more experienced. Will try and find a way to model it in the curve.....
