Wrap text to surface

Creator
Creator

Hello to everyone,

 

I would like to wrap text to non developable surface (in this case it is torus, tyre profile). It is important to wrap text not to project it. Length of non wrapped and wrapped letters should be the same or with small difference

(no more than 0.05 - 0.1 mm).

 

 

 

I am new in NX and I use NX 11.

 

Thanks in advance

You cannot 'wrap curves' to a non-developable surface.

 

I suggest you look at the Curve -> Text command.

 

Refer to the Help Documentation for instructions.

Yes I know that, but maybe there are some manual solutions. For example, I can wrap text to conical surface and than to project to torus surface. If I chose right cone the distortion of text on torus will be smaller. But I hope that NX has some sophisticated solution.

Did you try the new Flattening and Forming feature in NX11? (not in every license)

this feature will first flatten the surface, than place the text on the flatted surface and then reform it with the text object.

Hello Ruud,

 

Yes I tried with flattening and forming, but when I do forming and reuse I get some distortion of markings about 0.2-0.3 mm and this is not good enough for me.

Thank you anyway!

I used Extrude as shown in the attached file.

 

Is this closer to what you are looking for?

Hello RonY,

 

No this is not what I looking for.

It is vertical projection not wrap.

I am sending you one example of wrap to developable surface to see what I want.

 

Thank you
