Emboss failing for engraving.

Hi Everyone

 

The subject basically says it all. I am trying to emboss two words onto a solid model. Unfortunately it keeps failing. I am copying this model off of U-Tube models "LED LAMP"

Could anyone try and use the emboss feature for me and engrave the words "LED LAMP" On the centre of the top of my solid model part. Top View reads vertically going up the way.

I would be very grateful if someone would try and do it for me, save it and send it back or explain why it keeps failing.

Please edit part 8. Then start the Emboss process. 1/64 = Depth. Flat White colour. Following the video on youtube they use engrave from face then reverse the direction the arrow points towards the model. Then OK. That's the way I am showed  it and I can't get it to engrave.

Kind regards

A CAD Student.

Your sketches are not constrained... why is this such a hard concept for people to grasp.

Try creating the sketch for the emboss on the face that you would like the emboss on

I am following the u-tube video. On the video The sketch is made on Work plane2. It is fully constrained on sketch 10. I am asking why wont it engrave from there it works on the video,

But thanks for your response.

I was hoping for an explanation why my model wont engrave and the video does??

 

Kind regards
