I would like to extrude text on a ring.

I could wrap the sketch but than I don't know what to do...

Somebody who can help?

Thanks!

Use the Normal (perpendicular) Protrusion command.

Thanks for this fast answer!

I knew the 'normal cutout', but never used this command.

Ok, so this works fast and easy but...

 

What I do:

  • draw ring
  • make parallel plane (tangent)
  • draw text sketch on parallel plane
  • Wrap sketch
  • Normal protrusion of the wrapped sketch (text)

 

When I change the text a bit (even only add a space between words) the normal protrusion gets corrupt  an fails to rebuild. 

I don't think this is how this should work.
