    I don't know Maya and 3D questions are out of scope for this site (though we have a proposal here), but I know that in Cinema 4D, you would import your path and apply an Extrude Object to it. You then click on the Caps tab of your Extrude Object's options and change the Cap to Fillet Caps with a convex edge. You can then increase the number of steps, to smooth the edge. I'm not sure if it's any help, but here's a screenshot of an example

in the channel box (right box on the screen) scroll down to poly bevel section that you made then in there change offset , roundness and segments to get to what you need


select the edge that you want smooth Then shift Right click and then select bevel option Then play with the parameters you want. HAVE FUN
