Wrap to surface and project normal to surface in 3D Sketch

Hello all,

I am an Autodesk Inventor user trying to learn SW and I am trying to recreate a specific 3d sketch that I have done in Inventor. Best way to explain is to show how I've done it:

 

simple sketch in front plane:

a few concentric circular segments in top plane:

extruded surfaces of the circular segments:

creating a 3d sketch by wrapping the first sketch to the first surface (I need to have the projected line segments 'equal' with equal 'angles' and distance between the points.):

final result - in the same 3d sketch, the first 3d projection is projected 'normal' to the other concentric surfaces:

Is it possible to do this in SolidWorks?

 

I don't need any solids, the final result will be the 3d sketch, used for a CNC toolpath generation.
