# Closing a path with too sharps edges [duplicate]

The "oval" path in too sharp as you can see in the intersection with the horizontal line. How can i fix this problem?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.3]

\draw[smooth,pattern=north east lines] (0,0) to[out=75,in=285] (0,7.5)   to[out=255,in=105] (0,0)-- cycle;
\draw (0,-7.5) to[out=105,in=255] (0,0);

\draw (0,7.5)--(20,7.5);
\draw (0,-7.5)--(20,-7.5);

\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

What do you mean with "too sharp"? Is it the problem with the miter join? if so this was already answered here, in the final part, wasn't? –  JLDiaz May 13 at 16:57

Not sure exactly what you desire but just tweak the in and out angles to suit. Here they are with a 20 degree change, and a thick line style:

## Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.3]

\draw[smooth,pattern=north east lines,thick] (0,0) to[out=55,in=305] (0,7.5)   to[out=235,in=125] (0,0)-- cycle;
\draw [thick] (0,-7.5) to[out=125,in=235] (0,0);

\draw (0,7.5)--(20,7.5);
\draw (0,-7.5)--(20,-7.5);

\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
