emboss a font around a circular object

Post by Matti03 » Wed Apr 15, 2020 7:28 pm

Hey there,
I was trying to get the coke logo kinda warped around this bottle but I just don't know how. I don't wanna engrave it i want it to come out!
Also is there an easier way to make a bottle like this? I just drew the sketch and extruded it 360°.
thanks in advance

I dragged the shapestring out of the body.
Converted it to a sketch in Draft using Draft to Sketch tool.
Created a cylinder roughly the same size as the radius of the bottle where the text is to go.
Used Curves workbench tool to map sketch to face of cylinder.
Created a Draft clone of the body, but I'm not sure that was necessary.

Notice there are some self-intersection issues with your body object.
I didn't have the same font installed, so I used a different one.

I'm stuck on the Curves tool... How do you do it and where do i find it? cuz i thought curves workbench but there is none.
What do you do once draft cloned?
Also the clylinder is supposed to be inside of the bottle right?

I've made a video on this.

The model is too large to attach, but you can get it from my github site:

I was just following your video but somehow (and my revolution sketch is still the same) it doesn't show me any errors in part check geometry.
Here's a screenshot.

When you select the face as a reference at around 9:45 into your video it gives me an error.
"'Part.Face' object has no attribute 'cutHoles'"
I did everything the same as you in the video.

Where can I download that. All I can find is 0.18 and that's the one I have!
