Offset Srf problem

(ultimate wip).
Offset srf does not run properly on this surface (I see there is an abnormality in normal directions).

You are careless.

This surface is not offset correctly. I thought it worked with Rhino 7, but nothing.

DivideAlongCreases with split at tangents=yes

then use the offset in the solids menu.

This is generally a better situation for other operations as well… Splitting should just happen, and merging should be the thing you have to do deliberately. I have not got any traction with that over the years. SplitAttangents=Yes/No in some commands is the best we have. source: Cap command is corrupting the surface


divide along creases also helps before exporting as STL for 3d printing.
