Offset a solid?

Hi all.

I have a series of solids that I’ve modelled from extrusions, booleans, etc, and now I want to try and offset them within themselves, effectively to create wall and roof thicknesses without having to create a copy and manipulate each face individually, or model each element individually. Not sure if this is possible, but if there is a quick way to do such a thing it’d be great to hear about it :slight_smile:

EDIT: Just tried offset surface with object selected, worked first time for what I was wanting to do…

There is also the “Shell” Command. Which may get you a result you want. On the left side is a box 32x32x32, on the right I ran the “shell” command and selected the front face which gave me a wall thickness of 1 (you can change in the command line)for all the other faces. It can sometimes give weird results but usually works for me. See image below.

This may work better for what I’m doing, thanks a lot!
