Linear Pattern In Solidworks(Illustrated Expression)
In this article we will show you how to use Wrap command in Solidworks to reflect various sketches on planes to curvy surfaces of features. If you want to obtain a reflection of a sketch on a curvy surface, the use of Wrap command in Solidworks is vey useful. Also you can find lots of contents in Mechanical Base about Solidworks’s options and commands to learn Solidworks completely.

Think about a situation that you want to reflect the skecth on Plane1 as shown by red arrow above on the surface of the 3D geometry as shown by green arrow above in Solidworks.
To do it, you need to open the Wrap command by clicking on it as shown by green arrow above.
You need to select the related sketch that you want to reflect as shown by green arrow above.
If you select the Emboss option as shown by green arrow above, the sketch that you selected will be extruded on the selected surface. Select the surface as shown by red arrow above in Wrap command. Enter a extrude value as shown in red box above.
As you can see above, Embpss option in Wrap command will make a feature like above in Solidworks.
If you select Deboss as shown by red box above, the reverse effect of Emboss will be obtained. The 3D geometry will be carved with entered depth value in Wrap command.
As you can see above, Deboss selection will make features like above in Solidworks Wrap command.
Also you can scribe a skecth directly to the 3D geometry as shown above in Solidworks.
The Wrap command is very basic and useful in lots of situations in Solidworks.
