Surface Offset


I am offsetting a planar quad mesh (nothing fancy, just sphere subdivision) that results in planar offset faces. The offset seems great except of the boundaries.

Is there any way to prevent this and have a clean boundary?
Any solution rhino, grasshopper or code would be helpful.

I attach Rhino file.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Yeah, that is a bit tough - the offsets can be externded internally until they intersect but at the edges there is nothing to tell Rhino how far to extend nor whether to extend at all - (note a sharp corner offset is not a true offset where the surfaces must be extended). Round corners may be the way to go.

Hi Petras,
FaceFaceOffset will give a clean boundary (3.0 KB)
