I am trying to sketch the outline (1mm gap) of a text drawn in Sketch Mode by using the Offset Entities tool but it wouldn't work. Would really appreciate it if anyone could advise me on how I could achieve it.
I am currently using SolidWorks Standard Edition 2017.
Right click on your text & select "Dissolve Text", then you will be able to use the offset command. Only problem being you will get lots of very small lines making up the text & when offset, will probably get lots of overlapping geometry that will need trimming.
