Hi Gaston - for that use Construct / Offset - that generates shapes at a constant distance from an existing one which as you noticed is a different type of thing than scaling.

So for example if you have this curve:

Construct / Offset will create new curves that are a constant distance away, like this:

Those are offsets calculated at a distance of 1, 2, 3, and then 4 units.
