Planar Wire Offset Dialog OptionsKeyCreator \ Create \ Advanced-Spline \ Planer-Wire-Offset \ Planar-Wire-Offset-Dialog-Options
The options available from the Planar Wire Offset dialog box are explained below.
Enter an offset distance. This is the distance at which the offset will be created.
Number of Copies
Indicate the number of copies to be made.
There are two methods to choose the planar set of curves to offset:
NOTE: All curves must be lines, arcs, conics, or splines. The order of selection is unimportant. The entire set must lie on a plane. The ends must join to form a continuous chain. (If the ends do not meet, you can use Create Blended Spline to bridge the gap.) The set does not have to be closed.
Once you have selected the curves to offset, two vectors are presented on the screen to allow you to choose the offset direction. If the offset enlarges a convex corner of two curves, the corner will be smoothly blended with an arc on the offset curve set.
