I was wondering if there was any possible way to wrap the design in the attached to the solidworks part attached on the corner surface. I can scale it down to size but i can't seem to put it on the surface.
John, assuming you need the pattern to be part of the casting, 3D Printing or molding geoemtry, your most direct route is to create a wrap feature from the sketch. Having looked at your model and your DWG, you'll need to address the following issues:
The face your wrap the sketch onto will need to be analytic (cylindrical, conical, toroidal, spherical) which means you can't create it as a loft, boundary or fill since these generate general surfaces.
You'll need to create a plane tangent to the surface onto which you want to wrap the DWG
Your DWG appears to be composed of imported splines with several hidden control points and although the geometry is closed, it's also self-intersecting. You'll need to correct that prior to inerting the DWG into SolidWorks. If you created the pattern in Illustrator and have Illustrator CS3 or later on your machine, you can import the AI file directly into SolidWorks and see if it renders the geometry in a more usable format than Illustrator's DWG exporter
In a worst-case scenario, you'll need to retrace the pattern in SolidWorks in order to produce suitable geometry.
Finaly, you can only wrap a sketch over one face at a time, so not only does your wrap surface need to be cylindrical, it has to be composed of only one face.
You might want to look at some of the Jewelry designs showcased in the PhotoView 360 gallery and talk to their authors about their strategy for this kind of thing.
Which surface do you want to wrap it onto? Are you wanting to create a raised pattern or a sunken relief or simply have the flat design show up on the surface in SolidWorks?
I really wish my employer wasn't so cheap so we could upgrade to 2014 so I can get in on some of this stuff or at least see them.
I know, my employer was cheap and had us still using 2012 until a couple months ago. They were waiting until a few service packs came out on 2014 so that we could get 2015 before maintenance runs out and then I have a feeling I'll be stuck on 2015 for a few years.
Anyway to satisfy your curiosity here is what the part looks like:
And here is the pattern as it shows up in edrawings with areas filled in:
Thanks for showing...If you copy the sketch from AutoCad or Draftsight or even create a part from the sketcl you should be able to make a sketch with it and then wrap it on there.
Assuming you just want to apply an image, check out Decal in the Help files.
