I need to do a smooth transtition between that first long cube and the cylinder kind of shpe on it's right so that the cube and cylinder are attached toether and we dont see the edges of the cube.

 

I created a Loft between a sketch on the end of the rectangular solid and the existing sketch of the cylinder.

Sketch1, 2, 3, 9, 11, 15, 16 are not constrained.

Workplanes 1, 2 & 3 are not needed.

 

I recommend you read this while I (or someone) works up a solution.

What version of Inventor did you say you are using?

Thanks, i have another question though. If you go to the left view you will see the top pipe coming in at a 45 angle from top in the cube. Is there a way to cut it so it's long enough just to get in the cube and not have extra part like there is right now.

When you extrude the pipe use the TO command.  Then select the cube face. This will extend your tube to the face of the cube without having additional material.
