Seems to be invisible Solid1. I made it visible and deleted it. After that the tube came through, into STEP file.

Notice that Sketch7 is not constrained to 3DSketch1.

Your sweep profile is not constrained to your sweep path.

 

Project Geometry the endpoint of 3DSketch1 into Sketch 7 and add coincident constraint to the circles.
