Thanks so much Andrew Kronquist!!!! I'll try to make the same!!! Your work is great!! It's exactly what I wanted!! Thanks again for your help and time!!! Bye!
I had a look at your model and I was able to get text on the surface as you require.
One of the first changes that I made was to add a top surface that I could actually select and project the text on to. To do this I kept your surface loft feature, except I added some guide curves (3D sketch spline) and I deleted the top line of your loft profile sketches.
This then allowed me to generate the top surface with a fill surface command. I used the fill surface command again tor the end gaps.
After this I used the knit feature to make a solid body.
For the text I created an plane offset from the top plane. I created the sketch text about a centreline that was the length of the part, allowing me to use the text features the same way I would in microsoft word.
From here it was just a process of using the split line command to project the sketch onto the surface. This is found under curves.
Then with the split line laid down I was able to create a 3D sketch from it. To do this i selected each Text letter on the surface, created by the split line. Then selected convert entities.
Then once all the letters were converted to a 3D sketch I used the standard boss extrude feature, except I gave it a plane reference to define the direction.
Hope this helps, I've attached the model from the example too. I made the changes in 2014 so hopefully it opens for you.
