Projection of a Solid Sketch

I have several cases where I want to project a sketch or bold text onto
a surface which works well in WF2.0. What I would like to do to make my
models more representative of the actual product is to fill the text in
as solid text and also fill in some areas of my logo as solid areas. Is
there ay way in Pro/E to make text solid and maybe even fill in areas of
projected sketches?

WF 2.0 Build 280

Thanks,
Dwayne

RE: Projection of a Solid Sketch

Dwayne,



Someone will probably come up with a neater way of doing this, but the way I do it is I create an offset surface from the surface that needs the text/logo etc (make the offset as small as possible), I then copy that surface, trim it using the projected curve and then give it a different colour so that it shows up. This can be a bit time consuming though as you need to repeat the copy and trim steps for each 'loop' in the curve.

Search the PTC knowledge base for putting text on a cylinder. They have
a good tutorial.

Hope this helps,
