Rhino 6: _OffsetSrf splits

Hi…,

this is a customer note/(wish back to Rhino 5 ), that _OffsetSrf creates polysurfaces in this case. Rhino 5 did it with one face.

Hi Michael - I see that, thanks.

In V6, if you chose the option Loose = Yes, You can avoid this situation.
Plus, you can maintain the points structure.

Hello - you can yes, but cylinders have exact cylindrical offsets so there should be no need - the output should be another cylinder.

-Pascal

Yes, true, the cylinder will have a cylindrical offset,
But we can avoid the issue of having the offset of an open surface
Resulting in an open polysurface.
That was the reason behind the thread
