    To work on using the Wrap feature, firstly ensure that your curved surface is available for selection. After which select any plane to create a sketch, this sketch can include any shapes or text as you like as long as they contain only closed contours. However, the Wrap feature will only work without errors if you create the sketch within the curved surface, for example to create the engraving seen above, the text must exist within the green areas, and not the red areas as seen below.


    There are currently 3 type of wrap style you can input using SOLIDWORKS: Emboss (Extrude), Deboss (Extrude_Cut), Scribe (Projected). wrap3
