Location: Transform>Chain Offset

The Chain Offset function is used to create an offset of an entity chain that can consist of lines, arcs, polylines, conics, and splines. Using this function, you are also able to indicate the type of cornering you want to use for consecutive, non-intersecting offset entities, and indicate offset representation, as well as a chord height tolerance.

Use the "Chain Offset" dialog box to specify relative settings when creating an offset; such as the distance and depth at which you want the offset created, a draft angle, and whether you want to use Join lines.
