About Offsetting Surfaces
Create a parallel surface or solid by setting an offset distance from a surface.
With SURFOFFSET, you specify the offset distance and whether or not the offset surface
maintains associativity with the original surface. You can also specify the offset
distance with a mathematical expression.
When you offset a surface, you can do the following:
- Change the offset direction with the Flip option
- Offset in both directions to create two new surfaces
- Create a solid between the offset surfaces
- If you are offsetting more than one surface, you can specify whether the offset surfaces
- Enter an expression that will constrain the distance of the offset surface to the
original surface. This option is only available if associativity is on.
th SURFOFFSET, you specify the offset distance and whether or not the offset surface maintains associativity with the original surface. You can also specify …Offset tool to offset a quilt or a surface of a board segment to create a new surface or a segment. You can redefine an offset segment as a surface, …offset surface with sharp edges? If an edge is smooth, it is recomputed by the offset operation. If an edge is sharp, it is recomputed by …offset type : a simple offset creates a surface which points are all at the same distance from the initial surface, whereas a variable offset lets you set the offset …Offset Surface (Surfaces toolbar) or Insert > Surface > Offset. In the PropertyManager: Select surfaces or faces in the graphics area for Surface or Faces to …on offset surfaces, namely irregular points and self-intersections. It is apparent from (11.21 ) …5 Nov 2010offset surface profiles, part of Civil 3D Essential Training.… Offset Surface. Create a new surface by offsetting an existing face, surface, or sketch region. Set offset distance to 0 to create a copy.
