    projection of 2D data on a cylindrical surface

    Abdulaziz Abutunis

      Hi SolidWorks experts,


      Please I have extracting xyz data problem.


      I have imported text file of xyz 2D data (z is constant) for an airfoil using curve through xyz points. I want to project the data on a cylindrical surface and extract them to have a curved airfoil that to be used for another purpose. The problem, I only see these data (points) as a solid curve not as points and when I try to choose them (for sketch to project) they won't bee selected.

      Please is there any way to project these set of data on a cylindrical surface.


      thank you,
