      I created a handle using a revolved feature, now I need to draw a sketch on one face of this revolved feature but I can't figure how any help? I tried to use a projected sketch but after projecting my sketch on the required face I need to use the cut extrude feature but I don't know how!!

      The chances are you can create another plane referenced to other planes and sketch on the new plane and then extrude(and merge) to the revolved feature (instead of starting from the revolved feature start from another plane).. I hope this helps..

      yes I already did this but when I choose project curve, the sketch is already projected nice on the revolved feature, but how can i extrude the projected sketch???

      I figure out the solution thanks, just for the record I can use the sketch I drew on a parallel plane and use a cut extrude up to the body with offset which I desire.

      Take a look at the Wrap feature as well. You can emboss, deboss and scribe. Scribe works perfect if you are just wanting to change the appearance (i.e. decal) of a surface area but do not need it raised or lowered. This makes your part less heavy (smaller, quicker rebuild).

      That's good news Mohamed.
      Sdod is also right but be aware that SolidWorks does only allow you to wrap onto common geometrical shapes like cone or cylinder, and usually not on a loft face. I am not aware if they come up with a solution for it. Still you can create another valid surface to apply the feature onto a loft area and merge them.

      Great conversation. I was going to suggest something, like extrude to surface offset, but it's already been suggested. Lots of brains here.

      What software are you using? I'm experienced in quite a few of them and should be able to help.
