Wrapping 2D sketches around cylinders then cut/extrude

Pretty much is what the title asks possible?

Alternate (asked in the sheet metal forum) can you unfold / refold a cylinder in sheet-Metal? Don't have sheet metal to try and documentation doesn't show or indicate its possible,

Thanks
Adrian

  • Yes, the engraving (imprinting) is possible - see the attachment.

  • Hi Jochen,

    That's interesting, but I can figure out how it was done. Any chance of some pointers?

    Thanks

  • Hi Adrian,
    (un)fortunately I'm just in holidays without my workstation ;-)
    I'll be back in the beginning of the next month.
    Meanwhile I recommend to visit www.ant-ares.de
    Have a look at "Africa" too.
    Regards Jochen

    PS:: I think, it would be helpful to create a tool (3DSOLID) for Subtract and than you could use the patharray-command to place this tool.

  • Definitely fortunate - enjoy your holiday.
