Place a Text on a sheet metal and export it to DXF

Hello Everyone,

 

I try to add a sketch to a sheet metal part. At this sketch I create a couple of profiles that I need to create a extruded protrusion (AddFiniteExtrudedProtrusion). Up to this all is doing fine.

 

Now I have to add a text box on the top of this plate to show some informations (A simple string). This information shall be shown while I run the DXF export.

 

I am able to add lines or other simple objects but I miss the TextBoxes item at the Profiles. The String have to be a text and not a sequence of lines and arcs.

 

So my question is: how to add this text to a given place at the profile (It seems that this text is placed as a Relation2D, but I am not sure and in addition to this, I have no Idea in how to create such an relation).

 

Best Regards

Stefan

I get a feedback from Solid Edge Developers. This is not implemented at the API. Can only be done by GUI and on a sheet metal yet. There is an enhancement request for this.
