Unable to sketch on a curved part

angus_bottangus_bott Member Posts: 16 EDU
I am trying to create a castle tower for a school project and cannot figure out how to draw the bricks onto the curved cylinder. Any help would be much appreciated as I am still new to this.

    There are several commands and options that may be useful to you.
    • Split lets you split a face using a sketches or surfaces.
    • Project Curve will take two non-coplanar sketches (like an arc sketch and a grid skitch) and project them on each other to create a 3D curve.
    • Extrude allows you to create surfaces by extruding sketch edges up to a surfaces. Those edges can be extracted using Composite Curve.
    I'm sure there are other ways, but those are the ones that come to mind.
