Re: Wrap a datum curve around a cylindrical surface

Joseph,

As David and Steven mentioned, you need to create a datum csys in sketcher.

Redefine the sketch 2 in attached part and notice that there is a csys.

Check attached file.

Re: Wrap a datum curve around a cylindrical surface

No time to open it - does the curve have a csys? I recall that that's the anchor to stick on the surface.

After that, select Edit/Wrap; I think it's easy from there.

Yes. The curve has csys.

Thank you Mahesh! So, you need to establish the csys in the sketch before you draw the sketch. Got it! Thank you for your help everyone!
