How do I turn a wrapped text into an extrude?

You know, it's an "engraved text on a cylinder"

FROM A WRAP That should be obvious since a simple "project" doesn't work properly on a cylinder.

The knowledge base has led me to a ridiculously complicated routine involving projecting and selecting in an absurdly complicated process.

I really should add that it doesn't work either.

Is this really the best we can do at this point?

Thanks Toby.

I actually succeeded yesterday by using an offset WITH DRAFT.

The offset used an internal section with the wrapped text as projected loops.

Moving this to the Creo Modeling space to give it the right exposure.

I should add that this only works if the wrap is less than 180°
