To scribe lines on a cylinder

Hi,

 

1. I would like to scribe number of lines in axial direction & around the circumference of a cylinder

2. Secondly, I want those lines to be visible on .idw file so that I can print my drawing

 

Sample image attached.

 

Thanks.

 

To get accurate lines on a drawing view, that are controlled within an ipt, you need to use surface modeling.  You project surfaces to the cylinders body, which are created on workplanes that you can move or control.  I attached a screen capture of the idw model tree.  In the idw, you need to right click the ipt and select include all surfaces and on 3D scketches right click and select include.

 

Hope this helps.

just extrude a small cut and array it around the centerline, then revolve a small cut and array it along the length
