How do you wrap text around the face of a 3d curved shape or cylinder?
Please confirm the Product and Version being used
One method may be to Extrude the Text and then use the Compute Intersection tool
Another may be to create a Material of the required Text and then apply the Material to the Cylinders Surface,
Materials are created within Palettes via the Material Editor dialog, in V8i this can be launched, from the Visualization Task
For questions relating to Visualization I recommend you search/post these on the Visualization Forum, here you may find your questions have already been answered, for example in this thread
If your new to MicroStation Visualization, then you may find this You Tube Series of interest, although based on the CONNECT Edition, this series includes the Creation of Materials
