Model Offset Question


New member

I am putting a coating on precision board (urethane foam) and it adds about 1/8" to the surface of mold. Is there a quick technique to push out all surfaces and volumes by a specific offset?

Thank you,

Michael Balsamo

<Tweak><Offset><Whole Surface><then select all surfaces individually>will work if it doesn't create any intersecting surfaces.

Create a surface copy (quilt) of the solid, create an offset surface (quilt), then create a protrusion with the quilt.

Probably other ways?
