Wrap feature in SolidWorks

This feature wraps a sketch onto a planar or non-planar face. You can create a planar face from cylindrical, conical, or extruded models. You can also select a planar profile to add multiple, closed spline sketches in Solidworks. The wrap feature supports contour selection and sketch reuse. You can project a wrap feature onto multiple faces.

 
First, create a solid using extrude, or revolve feature in Solidworks.
