Hi,

I am trying to find a way to wrap a 2-D polygon onto the curved surface of a cylinder. I've tried a few things but can't find a definitive guide which demonstrates this. Any code samples would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

you can't 'wrap' a 2D polygon.

you can wrap a 2D image however across the face of the cylinder.

if you want a curved plane you're going to have to define it yourself.
