The offset I am trying to do is offsetting in 2 directions (inside and outside) see solidworks RX video attached, can anyone tell me why this is happening?
Michael, you have to join the entire sketch. and then works one way only. OR with this sketch, you have to select either inside or outside of the perimeter. There is option under manager task where you could select inside or outside or both sides. I hope this may help you out. First, try with "join" future. search the future into search bar under software right hand side where "command" said.
I cannot close the sketch as this is what I want it to look like once I am finished. I am not following what you are saying about the inside and outside, I didnt see that option. please can you add a screenshot so that I may understand better.
Michael, I am sorry. This is looks like sheet-metal. why don't you use center-point arc slot under sketch toolbar. I hope it helps you.
You have to use the command four times separately for each sketch.
1. Change construction lines (vertical and horizontal) to normal
2. Make offset all loop
3. Change lines back to construction
Or use Arc Slot tool
and pattern it
Mine just decided to select the whole loop ┐(ﾟ～ﾟ)┌.
But really, it isn't a big deal. use offset again and delete any unwanted segments

Thanks all, I really appreciate the responses. All of these will work but they are work arounds, can anyone explain to me why one of the corners is doing this opposite direction thing? I have done one of the workarounds but id like to better my knowledge of solidworks and learning why it is doing what it is doing will help me with that.
