Recently I had to design a bottle with a tapered body which has 3 ribs on that tapered surface. I tried to wrap a curve along that surface and sweep a profile to make that rib. Unfortunately, the wrapped curve doesn't seem to be straight one. it got aligned with a angle. Can anyone suggest me a solution to wrap a curve on a tapered body without any angled alignments.
When you say tapered, do you mean a surface that is a cone? If so, the Wrap/Unwrap Curve function should work.
If this is the case (as in my attached image below) I would rather use a project curve (maintaining the arc length) than wrap curve....
I've ran into issues using the Project Curve with Equal Arc Length option - the results typically aren't exactly 1:1 for me when projecting onto cylindrical surfaces, probably due to Modeling tolerances being used. Also the part that should result in an arc typically results in a spline.
Wrap/Unwrap doesn't have the same issues.
