SOLVED

Re: Fill text

JLG,

I used a cosmetic sketch, and it works. But! as you can see the surface is not planar, when I tried to project the sketch over the curve surface, the XHatching fails, only the boundary lines are projected.

Thanks anyway.

Re: Fill text

Antonius,

I tried, but the projection of the curve (the one on the surface) fails when I tried to projected back to a plane, or even on a offset surface!

Thanks anyway.

Re: Fill text

Rohit,

I hope the same thing, I tried these other methods and I didn't have the desire result.

Thanks!

Re: Fill text

Martin,

It works, but the result was not the desire because the extrude feature only works for planar sections, when I tried to merge the surfaces the result was catastrophic! The reason is because the curve of the text comes from a curve formed by a Sweep Blend feature, and even with a little planar section it doesn't match right with the extrude. In other words, my sticker has to have like 15mm of thickness to be visible, so that would be a problem with the sticker shop )

Thanks anyway.

Re: Fill text

Ruben,

it is little bit difficult to understand your situation (for me ).

I have created simple model. You can investigate it.

Re: Fill text

Martin,

It's difficult for me too to understand your answer, I'm a new user and even worst, the academic version that I'm running, doesn't allow me to open that file. Hahahaha .

Re: Fill text

It is not a magic bullet, I agree, but persistence will get you what you want. Most times, it simply isn't easy.

So what about a simple decal? Decals can use transparency and you can manipulate the decal where you want it. You can even place a decal over another texture appearance.

In general, what you are doing is fairly straight forward. Again, it takes a bit of persistence and a good understanding of the limitations. ...each of which have work-arounds.

Re: Fill text

Ruben,

there two license types used by students:

  • Academic license ... available on PCs at university lab
  • Student license ... intended for use on student's home PC

Creo session using Academic license is able to open files created in Creo session using Commercial license ! Do you have an access to Creo at university lab ?

Upload your file if you can, I'll take look at it.

To be able to upload a file, you have to click Use advanced editor link (top right corner of Reply window), then click Attach link (bottom right corner), browse a file and at the end click Add Reply button at the bottom of the web page.

Re: Fill text

Martin,

Unfortunately in my country there is no such thing. I'm studying this by myself using only the Student License.

I attached the file, but I'm afraid of this message:

New objects created with this educational version of Creo Parametric will not be

compatible with commercially licensed Creo Parametric software.

In case it doesn't work, I just did a Swept Blend feature using a curve trajectory and two square sections. Untitled.jpg

Thanks again.

Ruben,

you can investigate my steps.
