Offset error Trim option

The Offset command generates an incorrect result in some instances with Trim=No option. The offset curve is not the specified distance from the initial curve in some instances.

With Trim=Yes the offset curve is exactly the specified distance from the initial curve.

Example: Offset Error 20210916DC.3dm (1.6 MB)
