Offset trouble


#1

Hello folks, this is my first post here. Fairly new to rhino. Basically I’m trying to build a sign and I’m trying to make sure that the pieces I cut fit together. The black outside line defines the outer edge of the shapes, and the green is an attempt to trace that black line with a .25 offset. I want it to stay true to the curve though, as if a .25 bit would be cutting an offset path. I tried fileting the corners but it isn’t working. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and thanks!

in the Offset command, there’s an option for round corners instead of sharp…
try that?

That’s beautiful!!! Thank you! Here’s another one, for some reason when I select an object and press delete it won’t delete. Hasn’t been a problem until today. Having to go to edit - delete… any clues?

Hi Michael - are you on a PC or running on Mac hardware? Does restarting Rhino help?
