I would like to place some text on a cylindrical surface to
emboss(wrap) it onto a part. I created a sketch plane tangent
to thecylindrical surface, but the coordinate system is not
orientedcorrectly. As a result the text is rotated 90 degrees
from thedirection I want it to be. Using the "rotate text"
buttoncauses the text to stack-up vertically rather than rotating
thewhole line of text. Can I rotate the coordinate system somehow,
oris there another solution?
When creating text, you should first draw a line to attach
the textto. Think of underlining where you want the text to
be. Then when you create the text, click on the line,
whichattaches it to the line. You can then orient the text
howeveryou want, by orienting the line.
