In this article, we will show you how to use the Wrap command to reflect various sketches on planes to curvy surfaces of features. So, if you want to obtain a reflection of a sketch on a curvy surface, the use of the Wrap command in Solidworks is very useful.
The wrap feature of Solidworks is very useful to create very complex designs on the surfaces of the features. Also, you can use it to create sketches on the surfaces of the geometries. You will see that the use of the Wrap Feature of Solidworks is very simple. Check the steps below!
How to Use Wrap Command in Solidworks?
Firstly, think about a situation in that you want to reflect the sketch on Plane1 as shown by the red arrow above on the surface of the 3D geometry as shown by the green arrow above in Solidworks.
Also, you can make lots of other reflections in Solidworks like this.
And then, you need to open the Wrap command by clicking on it as shown by the green arrow above.
Secondly, you need to select the related sketch that you want to reflect as shown by the green arrow above. After that, you can select much more complex sketches to reflect them on the 3D objects. Also, you can select multiple sketches in the Wrap feature in Solidworks.
Emboss and Deboss Features!
And then, if you select the Emboss option as shown by the green arrow above, the sketch that you selected will be extruded on the selected surface. Select the surface as shown by the red arrow above in the Wrap command. Enter a extrude value as shown in the red box above.
Also, this feature is a very useful feature that you can directly create embosses or deboss without using extra extrude or other commands in Solidworks. You can do it at once.
As you can see above, the Emboss option in the Wrap command will make a feature like the above. So, you can create very creative embosses on curvy surfaces with this feature.
If you select Deboss as shown by the red box above, the reverse effect of Emboss will be obtained. The 3D geometry will be carved with entered depth value in the Wrap command.
Also, the use of the Deboss feature of the Wrap command is the same as the Emboss one.
So, as you can see above, Deboss selection will make features like the above in this command.
Finally, as you see above, you can obtain different kinds of designs on curvy surfaces in Solidworks. This feature of Solidworks makes it very special among other CAD software!
So, it is very easy to use the Wrap command in Solidworks. You only need to open the command and select the sketches that you want to reflect. And select the 3D geometries to reflect these sketches.
You can obtain different kinds of designs in Solidworks with the Wrap feature.
