Hi I need to offset this complex surface (because they it is non-manifold i cant convert it to a polysurface) I did it with mesh but the result is wayy to complex and not accurate

meshsolo3.3dm (16.7 MB)

help please

Hi Isabel,
welcome in McNeel forum.

Please, read this post: How to ask effective questions
(… point 7 mainly)

I think there are similar posts in the forum, have you searched for them?
What you tried so far? Have you achieved something?
Is that a repetitive module/element? A 3d voronoi?
Maybe it would be useful to thicken the single module; an offset inside every bubble/cavity, and then shaping your structure.
(Now there are a lot of small surfaces/holes/edges that make hard to work on it, or even the circular trimming)

This is just an idea.

You answered your own question. At the end of the day Rhino is not magic or a mind reader. It and its commands are only as good as the model it has to work with. The solution, find a better way to make the base geometry so Rhino can better know what to do with it.

here is a possible solution,
without converting to mesh
