Offset errors

 From:  manz
Hi Michael,

I am finding some errors with the creation of offsets, I am not exactly sure why, but there does appear to be generated lines (additions) that are not fully connected to the offset line.


I created 4 curves via "Arc 3 points" then made "fillet", these I joined (attached model~ I have just attached the connected curve)). These are joined correctly (I have checked), I then made (outside) offset which produced the curve, but further construction was problematic. Going back I found very small lines (.002 ~ image attached) not connected to the rest of the curve, once I joined these, then my construction did progress correctly.

Please advise. (if more info required, please ask)
