Creates a parallel surface a specified distance from the original surface.


Reverse the direction of the offset with the Flip Direction option.

The following prompts display.

Specify Offset Distance

Specifies the distance between the offset surface and the original surface.

Flip Direction

Reverses the offset direction shown by the arrows.

Both Sides

Offsets the surface in both directions (creates two new surfaces in instead of one).


Creates a solid from the offset. This is similar to the THICKEN command.


Connects multiple offset surfaces, if the original surfaces are connected.


Enter a formula or equation to specify the distance of the surface offset. See Constrain a Design with Formulas and Equations.
