Lagging Offset



Hi folks!

I'm having trouble offsetting this object. I'm looking to offset inside and outside the shape by 2" the program lags quite a bit when I select offset then the object. Often to offset fails with no error message. Sometimes the program crashes all together. It's not a hardware issue, this PC is stacked.

It is likely the high number of closely spaced points at your curves.


My understanding is that Offset tries to move each point individually and does not like it when it can't move a specific point to where it needs to be.


Is this an exact shape you require? Or could you redevelop the shape using NURBS or Bezier points to reduce the number of points, especially at the curves.

From the screenshots, I notice you are on 2019. Please make sure you are on the latest service pack for 2019. There was a bug I submitted about Offset Tool causing crashes when it would remove vertex points back in 2019 SP0 that was addressed in SP1.


If the issue still persists, can you provide a file with just that shape in it for testing on my end?
