How to join a loop in a offset surface?


New member
Hi everyone,

Can anyone help me? I am trying to design a sheild of a TV monitor. Had to offset a surface of the case. But the sirface had cut outs and other features added so that when I am offsetting the surface, those holes are also getting included in the new surface. How do I get rid of these features, in my new surface?

You can choose to fill loops in a surface.

Not sure if this option is available with offset surface but you can copy the surface and choose your loops to fill and then offset that..
Alternatively you can reorder (or use insert mode) your offset surface to come before the features that result in the cut outs if possible...
