Okay, it took me a while to remember how I got the 'barber pole' effect. This was done on a 3" cylinder. I originally had the extrusion (text) going straight down, but the twist went off at an angle when bent. I ended up rotating the extrusion (text) -30Â°, then it bent around the cylinder. I made the extrusion 1/8" high, but buried it into the cylinder by a 1/16". As far as I can tell from the Front view, it's half-in/half-out of the cylinder. I also made two other extrusions with "normal" oriented text. The picture shows the Bend settings used in the attached V20 drawing.
I don't extrude Text because it is too faceted for my tastes and use my homemade text symbols instead. I will use the text for laying out of my symbols when necessary. Trying to Blend the edges of real text is near impossible.
Hope some of this helps.
