    the best way to get a curve onto a surface is to use the project tool where you can sketch the shape on a 2D plane and then project that curve onto a surface

    1. Drafting => Text - Enter your text.
    2. Save your text as a dxf or dwg. (not quite sure what format, try them bouth)
    3. enter in GSD (generative shape design), build your surface
    4. In a different sketch insert your dxf or dwg (copy/paste)
    5. project it on your surface
    I dont remeber the command exactly but you can wrap your text on the surface.
    For more details, please search on Youtube the bottel of Coke tutorial, I think that you will find it more explicit

    Hope it helps :)
