Q - question

Offset curve for multiple objects.

A - answer The standard command OFFSET creates offset curves for a single object only. If you want to offset multiple objects (polylines), use the command XOffset from our add-on application.

The LISP utility CADstudio XOffset creates multiple offsets to the selected objects, in the specified distance. You can specify whether to make the offset inwards or outwards for the selected closed polylines. The offset is drawn in the current layer.

The free XOffset utility can be downloaded from www.cadstudio.cz/download. Load it with APPLOAD.
