Sketch Text

Sketch text on any set of continuous curves or edges (including circles or profiles made up of lines, arcs, or splines on the face of a part) and extrude or cut the text.

sketch_text_ex.gif sketch_text_ex2.gif
The text is sketched along the outside edge of the face of the part, formatted, then cut. A sketched spline creates an offset edge. A second sketch places the text on the offset line. The text is formatted, then extruded.
If the curve is a sketch entity, or a set of sketch entities, and the sketch text is in the same sketch as the curve, convert the sketch entities to construction geometry.
