how to emboss and engrave text on any model/component in CATIA ?

This is a very weird method

  1. Step 1:

    start a draft

  2. Step 2:

    type in you text

  3. Step 3:

    save as dwg

  4. Step 4:

    open the saved dwg file

  5. Step 5:

    copy the text

  6. Step 6:

    paste it in the sketching plane in sketch while working on your part (the text is in black)
    note: when you paste the text, you may not be able to see it. I recommend clicking on 'fit to window'

  7. Step 7:

    the newly inserted text can be transformed scaled etc.

  8. Step 8:

    exit sketcher. on this sketch you can do any operation you wish
