Emboss Text Orientation

I tried to emboss a logo on both sides of a cylindrical part. Circular face is drawn in xy, extruded in z. I created a work plane parallel to yz on both sides of the part. When I added text to the right side vew of the part (+y to the right) the text was correct. When I rotated the part (z+ to the left) to emboss the other side, the text was backwards. I couldn't find any way to make it read correctly. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks,

Roger

Hi roger,

 

Right-click on the work plane that the sketch is on and and choose Flip Normal. This will reverse the negative / positive face of the work plane.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis

I have the Mastering Inventor 2013 Book (which is why I was fiddling with the Emboss feature), and am much honored to have gotten help from the author here!
