Cap Ends for Offset Entities

You can create cap ends while using the Offset Entities tool to offset open loop, one-directional sketch entities in 2D sketches, for arc and line Cap end types.

Previously you could only use cap ends on bi-directional offsets.

To access cap ends and Offset geometry, select a sketch entity and click Tools > Sketch Tools > Offset Entities .
