How to sweep cut in different surfaces?

Hey everybody,

Im modeling a 5 litre pet bottle on Solidworks and i want to texture the surface with something like little cut pipes all around the body. The thing is my horizontal section is a square with the edges fillet - by that i do have 4 round surfaces and 4 plain surfaces - and Im not able to do this. I could only manage to do it in a circular section, like the 500ml bottles, but with my cut with no y axis variation.
Its like the little canals in the image attached!
I tried the sweep cut, wrap, etc... so far no good.

I know its an easy thing to do but I cant. can anybody give me a hand?

Sweep cut only cuts Solid Bodies not Surface Bodies.

If you going to use Wrap make sure the sketch length is equal to the circumference of the diameter (use equation) you are projecting on.
