How to wrap text to complex surface in SOLIDWORKS?

In this tutorial you will see how to wrap extruded text to some complex surfaces that are not cylindrical or planar.

  1. Step 1:

    Maybe you tried to use actual wrap tool but it did not work.if you have SOLIDWORKS 2017 it is possible to do it now with the wrap tool, but not with the older version of SOLIDWORKS.

    Now, lets start.Just create a surface like this, but remember if you have cylindrical or planar surface you can use Wrap.

  2. Step 2:

    Write some text.

  3. Step 3:

    Now, you are gonna click on regular Boss-Extrude option.

    We want to extrude that text from this surface, we want the text and each its letter to follow the shape of the surface right?

    Select FROM "Surface/Face/Plane" and select the surface.

    The length of the extrusion is up to you and check Merge result if you want everything to remain as one body.

  4. Step 4:

    This is how it is done.

  5. Step 5:

    Here is another example.This can be done on actual surface with no thicken.

    I hope this tutorial was helpful.
