How to Trim text out of surface


New member
You could maybe create your text as a datum-curve and project it on your surface.

Then use the projected curve to trim your surface.

Another way is to extrude a surface comprising of text thru your surface and use that to trim.

Note that for some reason text isn't an option in sketcher for a surface (at least as far as 2001). A workaround is to create your text as a datum-curve and use-edge on this when creating your surface sketch.
