Red face Bevel On boolean

Hi,

I made a tube by a boolean difference of two cylinders.
When i did that, i got these funny looking lines that you can see on the picture..... Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks,
Ari

Looks like you need to soften normals.

Best way to make a tube, I think, is to use a Surfaces > extrude comand.

You can also extrude faces along a path, which is a neat new feature.

I tried to soften the normals and nothing changed.
If i make a tube through surface > extrude, wont it be an extruded oval, without any inner radius?
