WrapSbp

From Shopbot Wiki

You can wrap a 3d relief file around a blank using the "wrap text around blank" option. It does not need to be text that you wrap around the cylinder, it will accept any .sbp file you have, including 3D tool paths generated in other tool pathing software and it does it in seconds. You may need to resize the relief file so that it fits within the dxf template that the Virtual Tools creates.

The results can vary, though, depending on the file. If the file wraps all the way around the blank the 2 edges will have to match or there will be a seam, and distortion can also be a problem with some files.
