Alternatively I would also be quite happy if it were possible with a surface. So far I have only Kind of managed to do this by using the Stretch tool and choosing a surface to Stretch along an extracted curve of the surface. This however distorts the original surface and since I don't know the exact measurements of the bent surface, ( customer file) it won't automatically use the entire lenght of the extracted curve... In General I am not very happy with this method and know that in other CAD programms there is a more simple way to Project the curve so that it bends around a surface. Is there an alternative to the Stretch tool in Solidthinking as well? I have attached a simple Image of the Problems that I have and what I'm trying to achieve: I am trying to get the (experimental) curve with "teeth" to follow the curvature of the Long surface. The part on the left is the attempt using the Stretch tool together with the extracted Profile curve. This is not a clean Job, is there another way to get this done?? Thank you very much for your help and I am looking Forward to Hearing from you ! Nick
Hi there, I am struggling with creating a cylindrical label for a packaging. I have the dxf outline of the label(on the right scale) and I need to create a wrapped label. How can I get such a result? I have tried with bend but it doesn't seem to be able to curve the surface in a regular way(circle). I have tried with warp, stretch and drap surface but these tools seem to distort the actual outline, as a result the texture label cannot match it. Any suggestion?
