If Abaqus will import other CAD data, then there would not seem to be any reason to not use a dedicated CAD program to create the model.

Why wouldn't you do it?
I've never used Abaqus. Is there an advantage to using their native file format?
In this case, it sounds like Abaqus can't create the geometry, so your only option is to import a model made in another CAD system.
What are your specific concerns? Maybe an Abaqus user can address those. I'd make the model in SolidWorks.

Regarding the drawing. I can't determine what the "10" and "147.5" dimensions are trying to show.

i think the curve is made of three arc that has 60 60 and 70 diameter
10 and 147.5 are position of center of arc

Can be done in basic Auto-desk AutoCAD. Its all about extruding along a curve that is well defined in 3dimensions. See my attempt attached.( Dimensions not accurate though!)

Use project curve / Composite curve command then use sweep command in SOLIDWORKS SOFTWARE.
