I am very new to using grasshopper but wanted to create an inflatable facade that I will be able to adjust the size. I started by creating a mesh from an offset then I run the Catmull Clark command on the mesh but it created a solid shape that doesn’t follow the edge of the original surface.
Here are some examples of the inflated surfaces I am looking to create from a base surface in my future models.
It would be helpful for a solution to this problem I’m currently having or if there is a better way to get to the result that would I desire.

Have a try this with Kangaroo2.
The simulated approach @HS_Kim shows will give a more realistic inflated shape, but if you just need a quick approximation you can also offset the interior vertices of a quad mesh like this:
