I want to make groove text on half sphere, but I want the height of the text depend on surface of sphere.
I have tried using wrap feature, but I can not use it for sphere. And, I have tried using extruded boss/ base. This is the result.
Could you help me?
In extrude use the option offset from surface and then pick "translate surface". Attached is a 2013 example and screen shot.
When extruding, choose "Surface/Face/Plane" for "From" in the taskpane and select the spherical surface.
Thank you all you. I have tried it and it works.
Sorry for asking again,
Could you tell me, how to omit the spehere? So I just get the grooves text? But the curve is still the same. Thank you

Do the sphere as a surface body rather than as a solid body and then hide the surface.
Other option would be to un-check the option of merge when extruding the text. Then hide the sphere
If I hide it, will it be vanished when I print it? thank you
You mean 3d Print OR 2d print?
It'll be there in the part file itself and you can always show it back when you need it
3D printer. Is it still in there if I print it? Thank you
Not if you use surface body (I haven't checked with hidden solid body, but this would be easy to check - simply save your stl file and then open it and look at the screen). Whatever is on the screen is what is going to print.
Rather than hide the body, either solid or surface, you can delete the body. That makes sure that it won't cause any issues as you export the part, either as .stl or any of the other options.
