Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Convert and offset entities, part of SOLIDWORKS Tips & Tricks.
- [Voiceover] In this example, I'm going to be showing you…some tips on how to use the Convert Entities…as well as the Offset Entities tools.…My first example here is a simple spline on a front plane,…and I'm gonna click on the line itself…and then choose Offset Entities.…Now, as soon as I do, I'm already offsetting that entity…showing up here by this yellow line by .1 inches.…Now I can also switch over here and go by directional,…so it's going in both directions here,…and now I have the option to click on Cap Ends.…
