Using Offset Entities

To create a sketch offset:

  1. In an open sketch, select one or more sketch entities, a model face, or a model edge.
  2. Click Offset Entities Tool_Offset_Entities_Sketch.gif (Sketch toolbar) or Tools > Sketch Tools > Offset Entities.
  3. Set the properties in the Offset Entities PropertyManager. When you click in the graphics area, the offset entity is complete. Set the properties before you click in the graphics area.
  4. Click PM_OK.gif or click in the graphics area.

    An Offset Entities sketch_relation_Offset_Entities.gif relation is created between the new sketch entity and the selected entity. If the original entity changes, the new entity updates to maintain the offset.

    If you are creating a component or feature in the context of an assembly and Do not create references external to the model is selected in Tools > Options > External References , then the sketch relations described above are not created.
