Offset on surface acting weird

Hello gurus

I have a simple definition where I try to offset some hexagonal curves on a surface, but even though the offset values are all negative, some offsets are clearly positive (outside of the original curve). What gives?

I have tried quite a bunch of tricks to solve this but some cells are stubborn to give the wrong direction offsets.

Thanks! (14.0 KB)


Hello Jere,

How about using a short curve, offset on both sides? (16.1 KB)

Well that´s a nice workaround :slight_smile:


This could be another way… (16.7 KB)

Interesting… I see the one on a tricky too-3D corner of the initial surface doesn´t do that “fishy-thingie” (failed offset) with this approach.

Oh boy it works well!
