Can anyone help me?
Adel,..it all depends on the intent and goal and in this example, I can think of 4 ways to do this using solids and surfaces...
I don't think you are forced.. surfaces in this case represent the solids face and your are referencing it to be later thickened...
I'm showing you a option or a choice... and for me, I typically use surfaces (I prefer them).. and in this case, it's pretty easy to do to achieve your raised cross feature.
for a alternate.. you could also extrude the cross (or centerline / thin feature) ,.. offset the double surface, thicken and do a "common"..
In SolidWorks 2016 the Wrap feature works to place edges onto a planar face, a cylindrical face, or a conic face. The toroidal face you have here is to complex to use with the wrap feature in the current version. You would need to use the Split Line feature and adjust the sketch itself to deal with the distortion caused by the toroid face.
But as Benjamin Modic mentioned in his post you can do this if you update to 2017.
To follow up on Ryan's post, the Wrap feature in SOLIDWORKS 2017 will create geometry on any face. Here is a screenshot of your model using the new spline surface wrap method...

I want this . Can you help me.?
Why can't you make a cut extrude and pattern that?
I have trouble with make the tow narrow line (see attached pic)
Adel.. maybe do it a different/simple way.. split face, copy/offset and thicken?
I rarely use surface future . Could you plz explain more : whats the difference of surface feature and boss/base feature.
I mean when we forced to use of surface future?. The only thing that i know is the surface features dont have thickness and we must use thicken ,.... I ask from several people and they say that they use thin feature instead of surface feature (like me)
Your reply is very useful for me . Maybe i have to study in surface .
As Paul, said there can be several ways of doing it. Even simple sweep can be used.
