Variable offset for surfaces

This is almost embarrassing for me to ask but is there a way to do variable offsets for surfaces in Wildfire 3.0?

I am assuming from not finding the function and no posts that htis does not exist in Wildfire

What are you wanting to do exactly? There are various methods: 1) Variable offset the boundary curves which defined the original surface. 2) Variable section sweep 3) Insert>Advanced>Surface Free Form 4) Draft 5) ........

I was trying to create and offset surface from it's original using variable offset dimensions. start at one end with 2mm then on the opposite end 4mm. it's a strap on a shoe. I ended up using the style environment once I offsett the original bounding curves of the surface. Variable section sweep wasn't working for me in this instance. thanks for the advice though, I appreciate it.
