tire with tread - how to ?

hello
I've got flat sketch with pattern (shape for single hollow) of tyre's tread
(i would like exactly that pattern to be left on the ground after vehicle
run over).
when i try to project this pattern on cylinder's face,it is deformed because
of curvature. I wonder how not to impigne, but "wrap around" cylinder with
the pattern.
is there any tool for that ?
thanks

Can't say I know for sure, but contact me directly and I'll get you in touch with someone who helps create tire treads for a living (using SolidWorks).

Yeah, It's one of those great SWX functions that seems to have slipped in without too much hype - still, there it is now for all to use.
