I have never used the offset tool before. I am trying to offset the entire part I am making. Currently, my best way of doing that is to offset each of the individual surfaces separately. Unfortunaterly, it takes a long time and the outcome does not look as nice as I had hoped. Can anyone help me? Does Creo have the capability to offset multiple surfaces at once?
As Antonius says. Alternatively, highlight all surfaces you want and create a copy CTL+C, CTL+V. Then create an offset using the copy. This method also works if you are working with solid geometry only. Change the selection filter to geometry or else use ALT+LMB to select a surface right click it and select all solid surfaces...deselect the ones you don't want by using ALT+CTL+LMB, then create a copy per the above. Watch out for offsetting greater/smaller than your smallest radius/edge distance.
Worth noting that you can select all surfaces of a solid or quilt very easily using 'seed and boundary': select a surface, then hold Shift and select the surface again (I think that's right).
Thanks Jonathan. I always forget about seed and boundary. I guess I never used the advanced selection methods enough to get the hang of it...kinda like playing twister with your fingers and brain at the same time.
