How to Draft like an Expert Using the Offset Tool
10:08 am  .   July 8, 2014  .   admin

The ability to use the offset tool makes drafting details effortless.

The offset tool creates parallel copies of lines and objects any distance away from the originals. No more hassle creating similar details and patterns.

 

Offset your objects with three simple finger taps:

1) Select the object or line you want to be offset.

2) In the Edit Object Toolbar, tap the “Offset” tool.

 

3) Specify a point on the canvas to offset by tapping or dragging.
You can also customize the offset distance by inputting numbers inside the unit box that will be displayed next to the new object.

 

Voilà!

 

Anyone can use the Offset tool like an expert!
