I've made a script that rolls a text string around a cylindrical surface, like this:
But it can roll sketches too:
It works by creating Bsplines across discrete points projected into the cylinder in a more-less complex way (I'm sure there are easier ones )
Next step is to do something to extrude this splines and add support to circular edges.
I've posted more about it and the code of the string sticker script on my blog
Sketch to rolled frame:
I need to automate the creation of the solid body from a frame made of edges. Any ideas?
