Hm, dunno, one way could perhabs be with making a curve in that shape, and then make a flat,circled face/polygon (in a shape of circile, that is),and extrude this face along that curve.
At least you can do that in maya, don't know about 3ds max.

you could make a line and make it have render-abilty, you may need to put a meshsmooth on there

(make a line and then uncollapse the rendering thing under it)
